Cretan Mantinatha (Translated)

images (2)

In his twenties, he`s burly/good looking, with sincerity, courage, and a good singing voice

In his thirties, he`s reached manhood and has valor and bravery

In his forties, he flourishes and matures and his life expands (family)

In his fifties, he`s in the Parliament, if he has a good head

In his sixties, he`s hunching and picking up a walking stick

In his seventies, he`s worth less and only good for eating bread

In his eighties, he`s leaning and crooked, blind

In his nineties, his family say “Lord, take his soul, so he doesn`t reach a hundred, cause I can`t hold him more”
