Lonely hours fill the days of the elderly,
With lots of time to spare;
Yet, no one seems delighted to tap,
The thoughts of an old grape fruit!

An old worn out book looks unattractive and boring,
Its content can never attract the young,
They think their knowledge and ways are obsolete;
Unsuitable for this age and time!

Perhaps, there is some wisdom in their thoughts,
New problems can never be solved by old methods;
But, new knowledge can only be extracted from the old ones,
Without which new knowledge will not exist!

Do not let the old ones rot in their loneliness,
Use their expertise to create new ones;
Old grapes can produce sweet matured wine,
While the young ones need more time!
