There is a charm and beauty in old things
That time has mellowed. Land and cities quaint
And curious; temples that knew restraint
Of age and custom; even the robes of kings
Take on a glory as each swift year brings
Them faded luster. Sculpture and painting boast
An ancient name, and old songs move us most.
Because of the dead bards who gave them wings.

In all about us is this truth revealed:
Old stars that wander in an ancient sky;
The aged sea whose breaking waves are whirled
Against old shores; the fire of April sealed
In hoary caverns, and that mighty cry
Of winds that are more ancient than the world.
