    A man I praise that once in Tara’s Halls
    Said to the woman on his knees, “Lie still,
    My hundredth year is at an end. I think
    That something is about to happen, I think
    That the adventure of old age begins....”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The posse passed, twelve horse; the leader’s face
    Was worn as limestone on an ancient sill.
