Age With Me will include poetry that inspires us to have a positive attitude, to gain heart when feeling challenged, and  simply to brighten our days.  Readers are welcome to send in poetry which uplifts them through the comments section.

We kick off with words about the opportunities of ageing from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a highly suitable launch poem :


What then? Shall we sit idly down and say

The night has come; it is no longer day?

Something remains for us to do, or dare;

Even the oldest tree some fruit may bear;

For age is opportunity no less

Than youth itself, though in another dress,

And as the evening twilight fades away

The sky is filled with stars invisible by day.


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Between 2014 and 2016 I took time out to travel alone around Europe, blogging about my experiences, discoveries and personal development on journeywithmetoo.wordpress.com One of the many beautiful lessons I learned was the possibility of self-discovery and personal growth at any age. I am now passionate about achieving and encouraging successful ageing and making this a Silver Not Grey journey. I hope that Age With Me can inform, inspire, and accompany you on your silver journey.
