Homage to Edith Piaf

It's trite but true enough to say
We are enriched by life each day
No tutoring at great expense
Replaces good old common sense.

Like Piaf, we should not regret
Our lost youth or our life mis-spent
But look forever right ahead
And feel things as they are - instead.

(c) Poet in the woods 2014
