Note from Joe: This poet was a junior in El Dorado High School (Orange County, California) when he wrote this poem as an assignment. His teacher, Mr. Leonard, posted his students’ poetry in a school hallway for all to read. I happened to be walking down that hallway one day, and was thunderstruck by the qualitative difference between the other poems and this one. I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a great poem. It reminds me of my grandmother’s description of old age: “The years go fast but the days go slowly.”
