Subject(s): Aging; Life; Memory


For haunting moments these have stood:
Twilight tints; a witchy wood;
The lilt of song, the whirr of wings;
The hidden life of wee, wee things
That scurry through the underbrush
Of every forest's shade and hush;
The wonder light of coming dawn—
Dew-drop mirrored on the lawn;
The awesome canopy of night,
Whence myriad worlds emit their light;
The rushing gale; the vagrant breeze;
The hide-and-seek of dancing leaves,
The gladsome thrill each new day brings
Of contact with familiar things.

Whatever years may dull for me,
This canvas, pure, shall ageless be.
