YOUTH, DAY, OLD AGE AND NIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Youth, large, lusty, loving -- youth full of grace, force, fascination,
Last Line: And restoring darkness.
Subject(s): Youth


Youth, large, lusty, loving -- youth full of grace, force,
fascination,
Do you know that Old Age may come after you with equal
grace, force, fascination?

Day full-blown and splendid -- day of the immense sun,
action, ambition, laughter,
The Night follows close with millions of suns, and sleep
and restoring darkness.
