Subject(s): Old Age; Widows & Widowers


We talked of intervening years today.
His face told what his lips would never say.
His eyes were drear; his hair now gray and sparse;
With stilted smile he sought to hide the farce
Of life. His shoulders spoke of sorrows borne
Since she has gone. (Each has his way to mourn!)
He'd wrapped a cut with bandage, ravelled, and there
His restless fingers ever travelled, aware
Of clumsy folds, all rumpled with the string.
He never bought a second wedding ring.
He could not marry just for woman's care --
For meals and mending and a straightened chair.
(And some think love is just an escapade!)
Alone he wraps his hurt with bandage frayed.
