Aged Beauty

To beauty that is ageless


Surrounded by distant tapering shadows
He, like an old frozen starved crag
Looking gone to earthly viscious eyes
Sees beauty in her artless staggering form
As she touches his forehead lovingly

Only her tapestry weaving colorful shades
Of youth that stayed distant as age advanced
Her charm still beautiful in his radiant eyes
Least of charmed looks himself he sees her
As wine on a warm sultry enthusiastic day
