You can always tell from their eyes
The aged wisdom in kept disguise
The tongue can’t endure
The lofty allure
That their all seeing sight can easily surmise.
The knowledge seeps from their gaze
Through soul’s depth and the mind’s maze
To the rest assure
This vintage is pure
Their age has dwelt through many of days.
You may by chance catch their stare
To easily surmise they’re already aware
That you’re insecure
That your voice unsure
Approaches this soul with caution and care.
To learn from them should be your goal
Avoid usurpation as you would a hole.
The learning is free
With humility’s key
Open your mind to the wisdom……
To the old soul.
