Greeting Card #2

Background is an older man holding the hand of a young child. They are walking in a park, or by a lake, something serene. The child is talking and the man is listening and both are smiling. In golden, cursive letters reads:

at 10 you were spry
at 20 so golden
at 30 were wise
at 40 emboldened

by business success
and personal pleasure
long bouts of work
and short bouts of leisure

at 50 were graying
but very well-read
enjoy your 60s
for you soon will be dead
