Old and new

What lies behind is old, that’s true.
Its purpose was the same.
The bench in front, well made and new
seems to deserve the name.

The old one, though, was really rough
but built with love and care,
served relaxation well enough,
let’s therefore now be fair.

We tend to judge old age by looks
thereby ignoring merit.
History later saves in books
the knowledge we inherit.
