CROSS

Stations of life’s rounds
Burden of cross to bear
Grief ground of growth
Painted there, holdings
In our inner self stored
Long passage ever trod
Stopping for each event
Anguish each trial cuts
Face’s grooves wrinkles
Age’s print as triumph
Aires our hope sustains
Crinkled in our mirror
Forever young in mind.
