My friend, Bud Brand, sent me another of his poems that fit the Aging column:

I wish I were a genius,

But that is not my fate.


It’s sad that old age comes so fast,

And wisdom comes so late.

I can vouch for that statement and sometimes fool myself by believing that I had more wisdom a few years back, but that I’ve only forgotten. Forgetting is very true but not, in my case, for having insufficient wisdom.
