Threescore Years And Ten - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Threescore years and Ten

October’s moon is wane,
May’s sun may not be here:
how many Springs remain
my weary way to cheer?

The Sage’s Response to the Septuagenarian

How many earthly empires
the circling sun must set?
Friend, hast felt of love fires?
Mere mortal smile, why fret?
