The Mind Denies Its Own Decline - Poem by Shalom Freedman


The mind denies its own decline
It refuses to try to remember with difficulty and imprecision
A poem it once would have recalled easily and exactly-

It instead lets itself go somewhere else-
But on reflection it understands
Dying goes on inside even when denied -

The mind is still the mind but it is not as good as it was
And the body works more slowly too.
