Stories of ode.

They’re rickety,
some finicky,
and most hard of hearing,
a bit batty
but chatty
with stories endearing.
Of back then
and back when
and decades before,
when life was
much simpler
and no one kept score.
So sit back,
you won’t lack
of tales as you listen,
for before long,
they’ll be gone
and you will have missed them.
Every passing day buries another lifetime of fascinating untold tales and memories. Spend a little more time to make and old friend with someone new or a new friend with someone old before they become buried treasures.
