    the poem is not correct. the last three stanzas are from Elizabeth Bishop's 'The Armadillo.' get it together whoever runs this site.

Homecoming

What was is ... since 1930;
the boys in my old gang
are senior partners. They start up
bald like baby birds
to embrace retirement.

At the altar of surrender,
I met you
in the hour of credulity.
