Let Me Grow Lovely

Rating: 2.7

Let me grow lovely, growing old--
So many fine things do:
Laces, and ivory, and gold,
And silks need not be new;
And there is healing in old trees,
Old streets a glamour hold;
Why may not I, as well as these,
Grow lovely, growing old?

A beautiful and thought provoking desire incorporated in a sweet song with little flight of imagery.

lovely; For it has hammered loud enough, Clamored enough, when all is said: Only its quiet part shall live When I am dead.
