Autumns and Winters of Life

79 Autumns I have seen
in a life that cannot be forgotten

54 Winters We have seen
since attachment as destined .

How many more autumnal poetry
I shall compose
can anyone now suppose

Many chills we have to bear
winter here kills

so we trot away to another sanctuary
migrate as birds
see you next summer
be patient please .

now going for a morning walk
wait kindly

with a little mystery and I just had to try and figure out; why the discrepancy between the amount of Autumns and winters that you have seen? I'm counting twenty-five. I am guessing that you have spent twenty-five years in some warm and balmy place, waiting for your winter to be gone, before you return to the temperate climate. ~ Geezer.

You is a Canadian goose, that flies south for the Winter, probably one of those, judging by your travels goes South of the equator for Winter.

Have a lovely summer again young Bard,
Yours Ian ..

Words can build a nation

Fifty four years watching Autumns and winters together, that deserves praise on it's own. Congrats, may yous see many more, Regards Roscoe..

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

I just got the numbers mixed up. I meant fifty-four. You must have been twenty-five when you met.
Too many late nights, lately. LoL
