Though Ageing


Though ageing I'm fairly healthy fit and strong
And I feel happy I have lived this long
And though my best years long gone and old age near ahead
Some I went to school with are amongst the dead
But memories of what was with me remain
And in fancy I visit the old fields again
When tadpoles are wriggling in the watery drain
And wildflowers bloom after showers of April rain
And in their breeding territories of Spring
The breeding male birds to proclaim their borders sing
I feel happy such things I can still recall
For I am getting older after all.

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
