Sixty-five sits easy on the throne,
Intending to relinquish soon his power.
Xylophones rejuvenate the hour,
Tinkling of a time less far from home,
Years when the gift of life was in full flower.

For now, there is the daydream of a bower
In which one lives for harmony alone.
Vistas of an old, abandoned tower
Etch against the sky the days of stone.
