I think the concept of age extends well beyond the human to understand. I think crows and all things in nature know they are getting old and that they are going to die. Elephants are a classic example of such who sensing their great age shuffle off to happy grazing grounds to die. This ode however is the exception to the rule. It doesn't know its age for reason it is in the constitution of odes to remain ever young.
