58.Calendar on the wall

Let me live my life, old calendar,
I know, I have but one year.

Let me be of help each day,
Let me hide worn out plaster,
Let me give colour to drab wall,
It is how well I live -
Not how long- that matters.

I can’t mock at you,my friend,
I can see my future very clear,
Just as I have taken your place,
I shall be replaced by another calendar.

I feel for you, but I must say,
Everything falls into disuse,
Do it with rancour or with grace,
This is the truth you must face.

Another lovely poem on Calendar. However,the first one on the same theme was more touching! (posted on 3rd January).
