Love in Autumn

In an age dominated by youth-worship, it's occasionally nice to know that, old(er) as you are, all is not lost.  You're not a dessicated husk waiting for death simply because you've passed forty. Or fifty. Or older. Age brings experience, experience often brings poise, and confidence. I think John Donne says it well:

“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.”
