  • Growing

    From The Sun, January 4, 1914. By Gilbert Cannan.

    When I was but a little boy
    I knew no more than a little tiny joy.
    When I was young and twenty-five,
    Then I was fearfully alive.
    And when I grew and became a man,
    Then I was the top of creation’s plan;
    I melted into love’s desire—
    I was the ore and I the fire.
    And when I knew that I was old,
    Then I was minted into gold.
