Their form against the setting sun
a man’s recumbent b...

in the lazy light of the evening
There forms a shape in the foam on my drink
Kiya, I see the outline of your head
looking back at me
I wonder just ho...

In their elder days,
absorbing view of sea, of sky, of sand,
of bird, of wave of weed,
Sky to the horizon,
Peace, a shroud of the land,
At peace together in
their Elder Days.
