Retirement May Not Be What It Seems
Music: Lovely Molly.
|Retirement may not be what it seems.
Even though it means, "To tire again,"
To most of us it is the stuff of dreams,
Infinite afternoons of restful Zen.
Reality, like dreams, cannot transcend
Elopement into some quite other state.
Mirage or monument, all things depend
Eventually on memory for their fate.
Now may your memories of us be fair,
That we may in your re-creation share.
