The Youthful Heart

Youthful Heart


“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
― Franz Kafka


A toast to the Y is for Youthful heart,

beating within,

drumming your song,

inspiring your dance.


I wish for you,

to always be surprised,



by the wonders in life.


To play,


have fun,

hop, skip and jump,

thrilled by yourself,

by others,

by living.


To love,

and be loved by,

earth, fire, water and air,

the moon, the sun,

the stars,

the world above and below.


And may the moments of shadow,

appreciate the light,

the black and white,

enhance the rainbow.


“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”
― Tom Robbins
