                         Waterfall Forever painting in acrylic 2ft x 3ft on wood by AV Rotor 2012

Imagery in the inner eye, old yet new,
of boyhood in frolic and abandon;
a waterfall forever flowing 
down the river in summer season.

Youth, be not proud, the old often warned,
for having lost but once your prime,
the sun sets earlier each day and hour, 
and the once sweet bell no longer chime.

And the hammock lulls you not to dream 
but sleep while the world goes round,
and gaining consciousness once again, 
one step getting old you're bound. 

Not when the waterfall is alive and strong,
not when the boy in you calls every day
among your restless kind seeking adventure -
youth the greatest hour is here to stay. ~
