May is Older Americans Month and we’ve been featuring the voices of some of Michigan’s senior citizens. Today, we get a perspective on aging from the Greek lyric poet Anacreon, who was born around 582 B.C.Lansing poet Ruelaine Stokes reads his poem "Youth and Age."

Our Public Poetry Announcements are produced in partnership with the MSU Center for Poetry.
