Subject(s): Aging


1

The green grows ever greyer as we pass;
The lean soil sandier; the spacious air
More breezy; raggeder the bristly grass;
And the few crooked leafless trees more rare.

2

And now nor grass, nor trees! But only stones
Tufted with patches of wild rosemary
And spurge. Behind them hidden, something moans;
And large white birds come with a questioning cry.

3

What's there, beyond? A thing unsearch'd and strange;
Not happier, but different. Something vast
And new. Some unimaginable change
From what has been. Perchance the end at last?
