The Aging Italian

The Aging Italian

The aging Italian

finds time for a jig,

and celebrates with

energetic limbs like twigs.

Although his students

snicker and jeer,

he chuckles, ‘they won’t

understand for many years’.

So he dances and smiles

for the joy of being alive-

not to waste a moment

to bounce and jive.
