The Beauty of Aging


He wears the golden emblem
over his wedding ring—
the few the proud the brave—

these hands remember

She washes bouquets of steel
in fragrant suds—
for him for children lost in time—

these hands remember

the years offered
in love when patience
trembled in fear

before hope was for an eternity
remembered
and age was found in the work
of their hands.
