Two or Three Things Valentine

The privilege of growing older
Is not that you get rid of the world
But that you finally get rid of a job
And so many other unnecessary things
Required to materialize our time
And if you are gifted with
A few good years of health
You can finally get a grip on yourself
And get back to the two or three things
You see now you started out with
A voice that can still not
Carry a tune but loves to sing
And a hand for the earth
And love’s glance sought and caught
