TIME'S PENDULUM, by                    
First Line: May we age slowly
Last Line: Mellow and more beautiful.
Subject(s): Aging

May we age slowly
Like a piece of rare old wood,
Which, after years of contacts,
Emerges satin-smooth
With the fine grain of the years
Accenting the knots;
And its growth-rings richer,
Mellow and more beautiful.
