I’m the eldest
of four –
the youngest to some
and ancient to babies unborn
my eyes are the darkest
my arms the strongest
and for verse
I’m the one
unwilling to fall
when nights grow dreary
and dreams are for saving
forever a moment –
imagined one day
a slow lullabye
as rain on the pines –
for years matter nothing
at all
