Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Winter 2019 67 Continued on Next Page ❱❱ By the Numbers How does the region stack up by age? " Y outh is wasted on the young," Irish dramatist George Bernard Shaw once said. e suggestion: It is young people who fail to appreciate what they experience, nor realize how fleeting life ultimately is. Old age has its own set of laments, as evidenced by the poem "When You Are Old," written by another Irishman, William Butler Yeats, in 1892, who is said to lament a lost love he begs to re-consider, for if she does not, old age for her could very well be bleak. "When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face; And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
