Old age though challenging can be liveable with comfort if one has companionship in the ripened years of life. This poem appreciates the life and spirit of an old couple who faced with difficulties of various sorts are happy being together.

Sitting in the lawn with unappreciative surround Of the various shades of green that bound around Reflecting their vacant thoughts of God knows what within the mind frame. Their pain, their agony of sullen loneliness In this ripe age of less mobility and solitude.
