Endings

________________

The party is over.

The dance floor must be packed away.

While the dancing drummers

Sip a last drink

And change out of their mundus.

“All lovely things will have an ending, All lovely things will fade and die; And youth, that’s now so bravely spending, Will beg a penny by and by”

Conrad Aiken
