When young, he sprung on cloven hooves

by Danny-R

When young, he sprung on cloven hooves
scaling crags and cliffs with ease
ricocheted down waterfalls
with ne'er a slip nor slide.
Ascending or descending
like a puppet, safely strung,
no risk, no fear, no worries
when the challenge meets the young.

And now he feels the ladder shake
when barely past, the second rung.

Yes we all get to that point, do we not?, Youth departs us so readily, we do not try and hold on to it until it is well and truly gone by. I do not even try to get on the first rung any more, less distance to fall. ha ha. Be well, Be safe, dAVE
