Look at And Comprehend the Meaning of Birthday, Sweet Sixteens Are Harbingers of Grace by Nicholas Gordon.
Sweet Sixteens Are Harbingers of Grace
Sweet Sixteens are harbingers of grace,
Intimations of a childhood's end,
Xxx's on the envelope of time.
This invitation I to you extend,
Easy in the rush of time and place,
Expecting in the moment's silver chime
No more than just a glimpse of life to come.
