    beginningon the cusp of a new year
    back edge of the old one
    may I see life as frontier
    ‘stead of something that’s done

    may I age with more grace
    and far fewer demands
    stare out into space
    and work with my hands

    make love the last word
    and thank you the first
    let my silence be heard
    and in joy be immersed

    look more at what’s starting
    embrace all that ends
    and let all of my charting
    lead me home to my friends

     

    Peace,

    Milton
