Forty-five walks along the shore
On which the years of fate and choice have thrown him,
Relishing the beauty they have shown him
Though looking out to sea for something more.
Yet he knows that life has much in store.

Feeling sings nostalgically within.
Infinity bursts weeping out of time.
Vivid memories come over him,
Each a fragment of some lost design.
