Written by
William Shakespeare

      Crabbed Age and Youth
Cannot live together:
Youth is full of pleasance,
Age is full of care;
Youth like summer morn,
Age like winter weather;
Youth like summer brave,
Age like winter bare:
Youth is full of sports,
Age's breath is short,
Youth is nimble, Age is lame:
Youth is hot and bold,
Age is weak and cold,
Youth is wild, and Age is tame:-
Age, I do abhor thee;
Youth, I do adore thee;
O! my Love, my Love is young!
Age, I do defy thee-
O sweet shepherd, hie thee,
For methinks thou stay'st too long.

William Shakespeare

A child of world's past by Imran Soudagar.

The sky turned dark.

The shadows grew large.

And the light played tricks.

The tweeting birds paused.

The buses honked but not now.

I stoped at the stairs, staring.

At the beautiful scene of,

Rain Drops falling, bringing

Back those memories of a child,

Who lived in the world's past.

And who still lives inside me,
