Aging (Poem)

Subtly, so subtly,the workings of Time

must alter the shape of the outer shell

of a  body once vibrant and molded so well!

Slowly, but surely, like a wood-boring worm,

firm in the grasp of a seasonable term,

comes the chill-laden wintry spell

of sad infirmity in a dismal sphere.

Lost in the woods of a cherished dream,

in the thickening fog of Nature’s scheme,

midst muffled sounds of distant strains,

are earlier years that knew no fear

of time and age; what now remains

Eternity must rightly redeem.

 

 

 out of the gloom

of a perilous clime,

firm in the grasp

of a seasonable term,

comes the chill-laden

wintry spell

of sad infirmity

in a dismal sphere.

Lost in the woods

of a cherished dream,

in the thickening fog

of Nature’s scheme,

amidst muffled sounds

of distant strains

are earlier years

that knew no fear

of time and age.

What now remains

Eternity must

rightly redeem.
