The Guardians
By Gwendolen Haste
From “In the Office”

OLD men nodding over great books,
Always writing with gold pens,
Every morning
Adding figures,
Turning pages;        5
Every morning
A little grayer,
A little mustier,
A little older.
Old men!—do you keep Age        10
Hidden between your desks?
Will she catch me
If I come down to ask you
For the October statement?
