“So fast. / It's all going by / so fast. / It used to be that our summers never ended / and our birthdays never came / and everything we dreamed of doing or being / was scheduled for / the / far / and / distant / future. / Now our summers go by / in a moment. / And our birthdays come 'round in a flash. / And the future is hard upon us / and all the things / we wondered about / and worried about / and looked forward to / and feared / are suddenly here.”
“It's hard to get together now. / But when we do / we're glad we did. / Somehow we fall into / an old familiar mode / a reassuring rhythm / that restores us / and reminds us / that some things / remain the same.”
