Lessons

 Elders have much wisdom to share

Often more than children can bare

Valuable words and not too fancy

Fall on ears of those too antsy

But lessons learned not a total waste

Mindtools emerge as a copy/paste

“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”

    Very good! I have witnessed this in my own kids. Of course, I ALWAYS listened to my parents 🙂

    so then as before
    again
    we learn

    rose glasses
    produce the fallacies

    So very true. We have so much to share.. they just don’t recognize wisdom when they hear it … ha! Diane

    Very clever in the manner in which it covers the subject. “The wisdom of the elders” hasn’t been embraced for a long long time now. Sad but true. “Cut and paste” mind tools emerging later in life has certainly been true in my own life!

    I find it amazing that I now appreciate all the drumming of wisdom my parents did – I sure didn’t back then. Now with my children, we’ll just have to wait and see. Good poem

      Yes, I think as we get older we are more in tune with the reasons why we were told what to do and what not to do. Things my parents told me make sense now. I think it comes with maturity.
