Sharon my friend, congratulations! The most deserving and outstanding poem in this most difficult style-you indeed are one amazing writer. So much wisdom is reflected in your verse, quite profound.

This is quite lovely and clever done in perfect form. A wonderful comparison of young and old. I sometimes wonder if I am wise yet, but I am old enough I should be-haha.

A very well-written Tyburn poem with a great message to young and old. The young is still eager to learn and want to know while older people already know and showing their wisdom while giving advice.

This tyburn, With Age Comes Wisdom, is formatted correctly and reminds me of the oft misquoted saying: Those who CAN -- DO. Those who can no longer DO -- TEACH.

Most complete example of the form required. Rhyming flowed well and a story was told with very few words. I enjoyed reading it. Good job!

Check your title spelling

This is a very good entry for the Tyburn poetry contest accompanied by a lovely and very fitting picture. Says it all in just eight syllables. Good luck.

A well written piece, juxtaposing the inquisitive nature of youth with the experience of old age. The rhyming structure and syllabic patterns fulfil the requirement of the contest.
Well done, best wishes for the contest!
Love, Owais

Sharon, I think this is a very clever Tyburne contest entry. A perfect picture chosen to enhance this well scripted piece outlining the youth of teens with their know it all stage onto the advancement of age with wrinkles and all. Wisdom is a wonderful thing :-)
Good luck in the competition. ~DD
