Constant ways to stand and stare

and watch this simple strife

Numerous the simple wheels

that help conduct this life

Cherished thoughts collect and seal

the rich concerns of youth

In answer to the thoughts of you

the lack, the dream, the truth.

Insufficient lack of days

to hold the peal of age

As age is shorter, love is broader

and writ on every page

come seen the numbers close to counting

the span of every debt

the way we were, our thoughts concur

the tinge of all regret

Our sentence being to create

and laugh at all rough taste

We wander through our happy hours

with disregard for haste

Yet when we pound, on age we found

a reap that is unfair

We cast our vote of memory remote

That also stand and stare
