Near Fifty-Nine

by Leonard M Hawkes

The sliding is not difficult—
Incident to age;
A halting, hesitant decline,
A trembling on the page.

Evident in simple chores,
The forgetting what we know,
A change in gait, new gravity,
“Submission” makes it so.


Author's Note: Started in some meeting sometime, but completed in Fast and Testimony Meeting, 5 September 2010.
