Beautiful Women

WOMEN sit, or move to and fro- some old,
some young;
The young are beautiful- but the old are more beautiful than the
young.

very nice poem...........old are more beautiful than the young
Amazing short and sweet poem reiterating the fact that a woman's beauty depends on a number of factors and not only on her being young or old.
To whatever age-group she belongs, a woman remains beautiful. Which woman ranks higher will depend on a person's own experience. Small and an amazing poem, nonetheless.
I htink this poem nails it! Older women have experienced much more, have more fully and deeply entered into, and can thus more fully and deeply express true womanhood, through their carriage, their eyes, their movements, their emotions, their choice of attire. And I find the full flower of womanhood, in full living expression much more beautiful, there is so much more there to intrigue and to captivate a person than a young woman can possibly have. The young are indeed beautiful, they simply aren't fully women yet. My two cents, anyway.
