The Old Man
By Scharmel Iris
I AM old now,
I am very old.
The sleep has come upon me
And my words. Today
Have I given all away.        5
Nor will I join in the talk
Of the old men in the park,
Tapping their canes around the well.
I have forgotten many things
For I am old,        10
Being cloaked in twilight.
I will stuff my pipe with stars
And go to sleep.
