Gerontion(In Memory Of Prince Phillip, Duke Of Edinburgh)
The renaissance of past ideals, dormant in my heart,
That germinated in my spring, and now as gerontion,
Has spread its branches almost everywhere.
It matters much that we allow
No impediments to hinder our comprehension
Of the manner in which a man chooses to live his life.
I have sought my epiphany in my own way, and
My life has grown somewhat into a book of adventure.
Now I wear a crown of old age with sagacity as sceptre,
And I cannot part from adventure: I will roam
