This is the best poem I've read by Richard and I've read dozens.

He is telling a complete story and underscoring it in a philosophical viewpoint, while grounding it in reality.

Thought provoking!

It's got a nice pacing to it. The last parts ring of Carpe Diem and such, except that theme was emphasized at the beginning of the youthful students' lives.

I'm not even as senior as several of you, but I have felt the slide of years lately, especially in my current situation.

Been there and done almost all of that at age 82.
