After Celebrating My 49th Birthday
Say what you will to still the fear-
that I appear to be ten years younger-
this is the age that Father reached
before he couldn't reach farther.
He must have heard similar words-
I never saw him livelier
than before his heart broke of not enough
and of trying to make not enough into more.
