When You are Old William Butler Yeat
WHEN you are old and gray and full of sleep
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true;
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face.
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead,
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
One of the best people I know was born on this day! This person is private . . .very, very, very private. Therefore, I offer this heart-felt and sincere Happy Birthday ( I am in possession of your birthday present and it is apropos)!
N.B. If today is your Birthday, and you have no contact, association, or familiarity with me, I hope that your Birthday Present from those who love you will be fitting, fun and fantastic! From me, you get a hearty handclap when we meet, but that about sums up the worth of my gift.
