by living

ah silly silver oh goofy gold
that armour cracked and creased
and graced with cackling glory
those plumes of weathered white
and fainted blue
the ivy-pleated walls
of songs and revery

the banners all well-worn
and carven chairs well-seated
but this old beauty of well-lived
is really to deserve
by living
