It may be that he sits so still.
(Men of ninety often will
In a corner warm with sun,
Knowing that their work is done.)

Or because within his eyes
There is something sweet and wise,
As if God, Himself, had spread
On the ground these bits of bread.

However it may be, things come
Creeping, flying for a crumb.
Chipmonk, squirrel and catbird dare
To gather largesse round his chair.

Perhaps his tongue that halts on words
Of mortals, now, can speak with birds,
And kindly eyes so nearly blind
To books, can read a red squirrel's mind.
