FOR A CERTAIN BELOVED GENTLEMAN, by            
First Line: Although the world may think of you as old
Last Line: Will surely dwell in peace through all his days.
Subject(s): Aging; Maturity


Although the world may think of you as old,
Within your heart bright youth will ever dwell;
For often to eager listeners you told
The stories that all children love so well.
Even at early morn they came to you.
And evening too; you joined them in each game;
As soon as one young generation grew
Matured in years, a group more youthful came.

And so these friends of yours will always keep
A memory of you, generous and kind;
For you are bound to them by ties more deep
Than those of blood: an understanding mind. . . .
For who loves birds and flowers and children's ways,
Will surely dwell in peace through all his days.
