The maladies of age are such

They rend us tender to the touch

How difficult our days become

This is not some great prize we’ve won.

Perhaps tis just we’re wearing out

Old bones begin to creak and shout

As like some aged trees we sight

We hold the dampness of the night.

The cold repelling off our skin

Is like a thief who slithers in

It seems the comfort age requires

Comes with the warmth of old hearth fires !
