Youth and Age is a wonderful poem by Coleridge that is fairly self explanatory as you read through it. He starts by lamenting how carefree his youth was and how it is now lost, how old age has treated him poorly, and how the very old are a burden on the rest of society. That is a fairly basic interpretation.

I would recommend reading the GradeSaver biography of coleridge if you need more background on the poet and his views of life.

it is great assay

Why does Samuel Taylor Coleridge consider himself as an unwelcome visitor in the poem "Youth and Age"?
