“I'm growing fonder of my staff;
I'm growing dimmer in my eyes;
I'm growing fainter in my laugh;
I'm growing deeper in my sighs;
I'm growing careless of my dress;
I'm growing frugal of my gold;
I'm growing wise; I'm growing--yes,--
I'm growing old.”

Kiss me, then,
Every moment, and again.”

Unless he use them wisely, and, indeed,
Knows the high art of what and how to read.”
