Old Things are More Beautiful by Clay Harrison

Old Things are More Beautiful
By Clay Harrison
Artist Steve Crisp


Old things are more beautiful
than many things brand new
Because they bring fond memories
of things we used to do.

Old photographs in albums,
love letters tied with lace
Recapture those old feelings
that new ones can’t replace.

Baby shoes, a Teddy bear,
a ring that grandma wore,
Are treasures waiting there behind
a door marked “Nevermore”.

Old things are more beautiful,
more precious day-by-day.
Because they are the flowers
we planted yesterday.
