Wonder ceases

While at stand we keep wondering
A mouth agape, forgetting to close,
Now we ask immortality but forget

To ask eternal youth to our bodies.
A cicada keeps nightly mouth open,
Sounds unending stream of youth.

We open our mouths to keep them
Wide and agape as minds wander.
Wonder ceases when youth is gone.
