Love In Age - Poem by David McLansky

My lover's bounty does amaze....
She surfeits as she sings my praise, ....
Pleasing as she tantalizes, ....
As we entwine and fantasize; ....
Where would we be had we first met....
When we were so much younger yet, ....
Had we been spared such long regrets....
The wasted time, the needless debts; ....
Had we when young had chanced to meet....
Upon some busy New York Street; ....
My life assured with her support, ....
Would have bespoke a sane report; ....
And she been spared the agony....
Of loving him who longed to be....
Free of her, her loving arms, ....
An insult to her loving charms;
But as we laze about the bed, ....
And as she stokes my weary head, ....
I lose my bitter attitude....
And kiss her cheek with gratitude; ....
That at least we have this twilight time....
As we watch the sun decliine.
....
