When? he asked. When does middle age end and old age begin?

"When" he asked, " when does middle age end and old age begin?"

It took awhile to recover from his question.

Ancient History: Beyond the Hedge

I have no desire to venture beyond the hedge today.
The sticky gate is blocked by four feet of tired dirty snow.
The coquette, Spring, plays with my winter weary heart.
Drizzle drips from the sky.
Diamond drips from linden branches and bird song beckons,
I resist. My boots are leaking.
