I’m too old, he said
Love’s a game for the young
I’m too set in my ways
Who’d have me now?
Maybe once, she said
A long time ago
What do I have that anyone would want?
They circled in a stately dance
Drawing ever nearer
They opened doors and drew back curtains
Contemplating the secrets inside
And finally merging, discovered
In some surprise
That their years were as nothing
To love’s eternity
