old

old is something past our time
like a verse, a phrase, or rhyme
intervening
without meaning
though expressed in words sublime

toward its majesty we gaze
sensing greatness, we laud praise
not exploring
but ignoring
what it means to us these days

and we listen, or pretend
though we never comprehend
once great sages
till our age is
so much closer to its end
