A triolet: My friend of many years and ways

 

My friend of many years and ways,
I find you still a joyous blessing.
Though age, us two, to time betrays,
my friend of many years and ways,
your face is still a joy to gaze;
and, even more, you are impressing.
My friend of many years and ways,
I find you still a joyous blessing.

Old Love: A Triolet

Yes, thirty nine, the years have passed.
Who could of men, back then, have guessed it?
But how the time has gone so fast!
Yes, thirty nine, the years have passed,
And love, till breath is not, will last.
It's fabric, wrinkle free, time's pressed it.
Yes, thirty nine, the years have passed.
Who could of men, back then, have guessed it?
