My 67th Birthday

Feeling good in every way
Except for small lick and promise pains
I have left behind midlife crises
And young man pressures
And the intimidations that afflicted me in youth—
People have said it before
And it holds true for me
There is a second childhood of happiness
As responsibilities and ambitions subside
Most especially as daydreams relax their strict exigencies
Or at least lighten up a bit
I sense once again the freedom of wild horses
With provisions provided by God and the bountiful plains,
I need not relentlessly contemplate the future so much
As to appreciate and celebrate each given day.
