Youth and Old Age
This came from Laudator Temporis Acti.
Youth and Old Age (Archibald MacLeish)
At twenty, stooping round about,
I thought the world a miserable place,
Truth a trick, faith in doubt,
Little beauty, less grace.
Now at sixty what I see,
Although the world is worse by far,
Stops my heart in ecstasy.
God, the wonders that there are!
