Yellow as the Sands

June 23, 2005

Yellow as the sands
that fall and measure time,
Old as the hills
and lovely as the Rhine.

Dignified beauty
that has but run its course,
Signifies age –
that lonely, silent voice

which calms and soothes
all worries, cares and fears.
That silent, comforting partner,
ever-present through the years.
