Not Yet

A  L  O  H  A !

"How beautifully leaves grow old.
How full of light
and color 
are their last days.  "

George Burns

" I honestly think it is better
to be a failure at something you love 
than to be a success 
at something you hate.  "

George Burns


" If you ask
what is the single most important
key to longevity,
I would have to say 
it is avoiding worry, 
stress and tension. 
And if you didn't ask me,
I'd still have to say it.  "

George Burns

My dear it's only lately
 I've realized that we two
too soon grow old

Not so much for myself,
I readied that long ago,
and many women must learn
to live with ungovernable

But you my king,
my weather, my boy
for so long;
To witness your ripening
an entirely new hell-
oh that I could buy
another 20 years by some spell
at your zenith
no matter the cost,
or what it meaneth.

So promise me you'll linger
in the days of your demi-god 

Wait for me
together we'll go down
but later,
to that bower.

Not yet.

Not yet.

Please will our afternoon gold
to linger;
It took so long
to find this perfect

Please kind lord
let me linger
to gaze upon this
