Old man

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



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.
