It Has Been Near Three Decades

It has been near three decades since my hair was light brown
When i lived in that green countryside just west of Millstreet Town
But the hair upon my balding head is now a silver gray
And it surely can be said of me that i have known a better day
Of any personal success stories i do not have to tell
But at sixty seven years i feel happy for to be feeling healthy and well
Some i did go to school with in Millstreet far away
By their gift of life forsaken with the deceased they lay
Where i first grew to love Nature when i was a young boy
And today learning about her is something i do enjoy
And though i can differentiate between a pheasant and a crow
So little of Mother Nature's ways that i can claim to know
So many lessons from life and Nature that we learn every day
We never do stop learning as the wise person does say.
