Reposting the poem "Passions" in a revised format to make it read more easily.


Long in years-            
when passions pout

Old's seen change-   
heard hymn and shout     

Wondering still-             
what life's about

Fire in the belly-         
long turned to gout

Thin's in-                 
so we shun the stout

The long haired poet-           
termed a lout

His poetic wish-                 
to shout it out

Wisdom through thought-     
to live without

We are the lesser-          
left yet in doubt

Deep in years-       
time when passions pout.

Ronald C.Downie.
