Stages Ages Pages

A  L  O  H  A !
Three Ages


History was a subject in school
How things came to be as they are.

All too soon “Are” and “Is”
become “Was.”
History grows bigger
digesting you
and everything you hate
or love
with Change.

The role you play changes
well behaved student - push and shove
explorer planting flags in life and love,

Dancing with your special one
till tasks on the treadmill are never done.
Hopefully you’ll play again
in the gold afternoon of your shared sun
ignoring the retreating light
yet bursting to tears over geese in flight.

Look to the glowing embers
not the dark,
Pleasures and Remembers
render it much less stark.

And when I am
and when I do
among my greatest glories:
my history with you.

Thank YOU
for being here!
Fondly, cloudia
