Retirement May Not Be What it Seems

Retirement may not be what it seems.

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.

There Is No Moment Large Enough To Hold
There is no moment large enough to holdThe yearnings and accomplishments of years.Praise be that tale never will be told:Too long for memory, too trite for tears.Yet I have labored in the cause of beauty:"See this!" I said. "And notice well its grace."All else was merely etiquette and duty,The pride and passion vested in a place.And in people of a similar dedication:The teacher's urge to share the craft of joy,To pass it to another generation,A gift that time might otherwise destroy.How sweet to have so long sojourned with you!Now I am done. Look well to what you do.
