Men at forty
Learn to close softly
The doors to rooms they will not be
Coming back to
Very true, wisely written. Thanks for sharing..
This is only one stanza of a longer poem.
At rest on a stair landing,
They feel it
Moving beneath them now like the deck of a ship,
Though the swell is gentle.
Very wise, very true, but yet for me a thought-provoking poem. Only one quatrain? But it is written with great wisdom.5 Stars full

Extremely profound in the first stanza, and even more powerful in full -
That is like the twilight sound
Of the crickets, immense,
Filling the woods at the foot of the
Behind their mortgaged houses
And the face of that father,
Still warm with the mystery of lather.
They are more fathers than sons themselves now.
Something is filling them, something
And deep in mirrors
The face of the boy as he practices trying
His father’s tie there in secret
