Old man

Old man reading book
Never to old to grow wise
Joyful eyes express

*

Time

The days
Tumbling fast
The clock racing by hour
Time to thee I invoke please
Free me.

*

Grey Hair

Mortality nigh,
Grey hair sunshine glowing bright,
Wisdom my true friend.

*

Fond Farewell

Fond farewell to youth,
Welcome now age and wisdom
Too long in coming.
