Daily prompt: Casual


This morning on my daily walk I met a man we walked a while together, he told me that he left school at the age of 12 which was not unusual at the time. He had an interesting and eventful life and since retiring returned to adult education which is proof if it was needed that it's never too late to learn.
A casual acquaintance

He spoke to me of Socrates
Ancient Greeks, Roman plays
Of Dublin in the good old days
A man now nearing middle age
Late a scholar now a sage
Educated through life's travails
Now happy to relate his tales
We walked along the riverside
Casual acquaintances side by side.
