retirement poem

for these white arms about my neck
night is dark, and the winter winds
the arches of the red bridge
the light withdrawn
i had over-prepared the event
be patient, life, when love is at the gate
in mournful numbers
pushing out, struggling vainly
she was a beauty in the days
i love my hour of wind and light
doubtless i remember still
