An interesting poem by Ms. Sanchez gives food for thought. Are we ever too old to learn of love?

Lovely poem. There is nothing as diversified as love. Being old teaches us new ways of love.... Seeing love in its universality from human to beast to Nature.

What is love to the poet? the rain exploding in the air is love the grass excreting her green wax is love and stones remembering past steps is love Enjoyed the poem's lyrical quality! Congrats!

So beautifully crafted on love between young and old. 'forgive me if i smile young heiress of a naked dream you are so young and i too old to learn of love.'... is so nice. Enjoyed thoroughly. Thanks for sharing.

The voice of the poem declares being too old to learn of love. But that person knows of love for that person gives examples of it. Unless he talks of carnal love and those examples given depart from that. And why he is refusing love in that way? Young or old, love has no age.

This is love, but you're too young to understand, and I am too old to learn. Brilliantly penned.
