Spread the love


Lo! To be foolish once again;
How delightful would it be?
To discard all thee muddles,
Whilst roaming around free!

To be young once again;
Splash in the river stream.
To travel back in time;
Chase the impossible dream!

To be clueless once again;
Lose track of time.
Disburse all thee wealth;
And travel without a dime!

To fall in love again;
Lose all thee sanity.
Get thy heart broken;
Reverse back in reality!

For everyone is foolish;
Before acquiring wisdom.
Hence; the circle of life;
Is quite a gripping system.

Lo! To be foolish once again;
How delightful would it be?
To discard all thee muddles,
Whilst roaming around free!

    1. Hello Wolfsrosebud,

      True.. being wise has its perks but maybe foolishness has its own charms as well 😀
      So glad you stopped by, Highly appreciated! 😀

  1. I’m convinced. I loved the days of innocence, love the Tarot Card “The Fool,” and have a place in my heart for the uncomplicated beauty of first passions in love, politics–everything. Your poem brings it all back. And then I think about learning hard lessons again and watch teenage students feel betrayals and think it best just to relive those days in memory! Love your poem!

    1. Hello Susan,

      Thank you so much for this delightful insight 😀
      It all adds up doesn’t it 🙂 So glad you liked it!
      Highly appreciated 😀

    1. Hello Hedgewitch,

      Thank you so much 😀 So glad you liked it dear!
      Highly appreciated! Have a great week ahead!

  2. Makes you be a ‘girls just wanna have fun’ person, k. I inhaled every line, finally stopping with, “Well, I’ve been there, back in my midlife crazies.” Very nicely written, I like rhyming poems, you did swell there.
    I did that, after my ex had hers first and ditched me. I had long hair, rode a motorcycle, mingled with the hippies on weekends, and during the week I worked full time and had gone back to college at night.

    1. Hello Jim,

      Thanks for stopping by 😀
      Well yeah there is no harm in having just a little fun 😛
      Glad you liked it 😀

  3. BTW, did you get a chance to see some of GMA this morning before going to work? The featured a new Down Under Group, three younger ladies singing Cindi Lauper style songs with a younger Madonna-like movements. Riding top down, two in front and one in back. (I have my Mustang’s top down and will take it to the P.O. to mail IRS stuff this afternoon.)

    1. Hello Jim,

      Whoa.. that sounds so cool 😀 I ll definitely check it out!
      A mustang sounds nice 🙂 Hope you’re having fun 😀

    Love the “free spirit” feeling in your poem. There is always time to let your hair down and be fancy free.
    I miss days with the “top down” which was most days in Cali.
    Great flow in your poem as well

    1. Hello Hannah,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked that one! Its my favorite too 😀
      Highly appreciated! 🙂

  5. I think we can be foolish at any age, wise too. But I see your point that life does tie us up a bit, curtailing pure freedom. This was a fun read. I think it would make a good song.

    1. Hello Myrna,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it dear 🙂
      Highly appreciated! Have a great week! 😀

    1. Hello CC,

      Well.. to be able to go back into the past with knowledge would be an exciting adventure!
      So glad you liked my poem! Highly appreciated 😀 Have a fabulous week!

  6. Really, we often think that youth is the time to be foolish. I think we are never too old to enjoy some foolishness in our lives.

    1. Hello Mary,

      Thats exactly what I was going for 🙂 So glad you liked it dear!
      Highly appreciated 😀 Have a great week!

  7. Thanks for visiting and commenting at Sharp Little Pencil! Wow, I love the abandon of this one. Seems like many of us have the Spring Fever, the wonderful feeling that all is possible… or at least wishing it so, which is perfectly caught in this lovely poem, Sanaa, Thank you for a great message… and I am too late wise and too long foolish!!! xo Amy

  8. oh yes it would be nice to go back to thy joy of foolishness…trouble is with each month and year we get older and that spontaneous joy seems to fade – joyful poem however!

  9. that’s a lovely lil longing but not fair at all, now that you’re equipped with maturity and experience; but yeah, “oh to go back in time to fall in love again etc etc”

    lovely poem

    much love…
