So may your silver years pass pleasantly,
Even as you rest beside the river.
Vanities are gone, ambitions, schemes,
Evanescent as night's vanished dreams,
Nor need you be as prodigal a giver.
There is much that now will never be,
Yet what is, is more alive than ever.

The current hurries by; the tall grass teems
With creatures, each intent on some endeavour.
Old memories float like white sails out to sea.
