Age, in its swift moving old rage,

At present covers a full page.

Once a period?  Now a chapter!

Age keeps growing.  What’s it after?

Age will soon more chapters complete;

On-rolling age knows no defeat.

Shortly, age will own the whole book;

It steals youth like no other crook.

Like a book, long ago loaned, Friend

Lastly come those sad words – “The End.”
