Walter Pope

If I live to grow old, as I find I go down,
Let this be my fate in a country town;
May I have a warm house, with a stone at my gate,
And a cleanly young girl to rub my bald pate.
May I govern my passions with an absolute sway,
Grow wiser and better as my strength wears away,
Without gout or stone, by a gentle decay.

May I govern my passions with absolute sway,
And grow wiser and better as my strength wears away.More Walter Pope [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
