THE QUICK YEARS, by            
First Line: The quick years pass like birds in hurried flight
Last Line: Are now about your feet.
Subject(s): Aging


The quick years pass like birds in hurried flight,
Cleaving all space with swift and shining wing,
Blown over spray of cloud to endless day
Where life remains a fair and radiant thing.

As if your rose had climbed a garden wall
Your eager eyes in fadeless bloom to greet;
And golden stars that were above your head
Are now about your feet.
