Poem by Robert Lee Frost


What Fifty Said


When I was young my teachers were the old.
I gave up fire for form till I was cold.
I suffered like a metal being cast.
I went to school to age to learn the past.

Now when I am old my teachers are the young.
What canТt be molded must be cracked and sprung.
I strain at lessons fit to start a suture.
I go to school to youth to learn the future.
