Age Does Not Bring Wisdom

Poem By Francis Duggan

Age does not bring wisdom i have come to realize
Everyone does grow older but few do grow wise
No fool like an old fool as some like to say
Seniority does not guarantee wisdom it does seem this way
It has not been yesterday since i have become aware
That the wise of the World have always been rare
It does seem that wisdom is a gift to the mind
In words and in deeds the wise are always kind
Feel lucky if you have one wise person as a friend
Your feelings he or she will never offend
The wise one the quietest in the noisy crowd
He or she you will never hear talking loud
And since wisdom on bushes and trees does not grow
Feel lucky if one wise person you do know.

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
