Twenty-nine enjoys a certain peace,
Well beyond the waterfalls of youth.
Even though the current still moves on,
Now it slowly slides beneath a calm,
Tranquil surface mirroring the truth.
Years bring change, but now change will decrease.

Copyright by Nicholas Gordon


Now the restless surges, raw, uncouth,
In passing through the heart will do less harm;
Nor will the ravages of wonder cease,
Even as they take a different form.
