After The Long Anxiety

And despair of the day
Peace comes in the evening-
At this time
There is nothing any longer to prove-
There is no more summer heat
Cool breezes calm-

An old man can be quiet
No matter what
He has done with his life-

There is just the night now
The long dark night-
And
Just to be
And to breathe
For as long as he can-
