Subject(s): Aging


I've known the glaze and glamour,
The glory and the fret,
The quiet and the clamor,
The languors and the sweat;
The roaming winds have thrilled me
With longing and desire.
The wanderlust has filled me
With fervor and with fire.

I've seen the deeds and dreaming,
I've seen the truth and lies,
And I have seen love gleaming
In my belovèd's eyes.
Life's savor, sweet or bitter,
I've tasted in my time.
I've known the glow and glitter,
The prose and yet the rhyme.

Yet now the game is over
And I am gray and bent
Still, still you see a rover
Who cannot be content.
For somewhere "over yonder"
Beyond the starry pale
There still are roads to wander
And I must hit the trail!
