Subject(s): Old Age


Always and always there was full return
For joy he gave, or joy he let her share:
His love -- but never laughter, nor concern
With thoughts that meet like pulses in the air.
These were his golden key to win the world --
Too brightly burnished for his daily use;
Moments with her -- house-busy, or sweetly curled
Beside him -- were his rest, his mental truce.

Now that he dreams of true companionship
And knows how all men crave it, rich or poor,
He sees it in her eyes and on her lip,
Willing but walled away, a lost allure ...
Sees that a wife must pay a man in kind --
For leaving her unmarried in the mind.
