One Hundred and One Famous Poems: With a Prose Supplement by Roy Jay Cook
The night has a thousand eyes,
And the day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying sun.
The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done.
~Francis William Bourdillon

Coming Of Age. - Poem by Winter Coulter
Every family has hopes and aspirations for their children. Some may long to send their children to college if the parents have not had that opportunity. Others may aspire for a better life in another country. Sometimes there are conflicts between the dreams of the parents and the dreams of their children. Parents may have labored so that their children could have what they consider a better life only to have their children choose other options.
Each tin bulwark nether advancing nor retreating, fighting back from being overrun, faithfully defending each bundle inside. Yet, the chill of the enemy is among us, it has broken through in the night. Not a word is spoken unbecoming of a brave little boy, now trembling, holding on to his soft quilted blanket, afraid to become a brave little man. Another childish battle was waged, but not won, early one morning long ago, against the dawning of the age of the 'Real Cold' grandpas know. No one knew it was real, not even the young man. A blast of light! Shivering darkness surrenders to the kerosene light, Sergeant Grandpa breaks forth with a big cannon round.

Alfred Prufrock in T. Here are ten of the very finest poems about ageing, from the age of Shakespeare to the current century. William Shakespeare, Sonnet If we can but remain young in mind, then we are young, no matter that our bodies may be growing older. It is a strange feeling about those who are taken young that while we are getting old and dusty they are just as they were. Arnold treats the subject of ageing in this poem, published in when he was in his mid-forties. The heart that beats in his aged chest is that of a young man still capable of feeling love, romantic longing, and infatuation.
