She acts routine of ancient lessons taught
So well each calls a second like a rhyme,
While hazily pedantic, half-distraught,
Old age reviews a life in pantomime.
Her voice is some abandoned record heard
Interminable behind a neighbor's door,
Revolving tediously about a word
Grooved endless where the music-pattern tore.

Sometimes she wanders vague along the wall,
Dealing her silent thoughts in solitaire
With shifting company the shadows keep,
But when she rests alone at evenfall,
Weariness bows her figure soft toward prayer, --
A little more and she will fall asleep.
