In Praise of Gray by Jay Rubin

In Praise of Gray

by Jay Rubin

Gray hair is a crown of splendor —Proverbs 16:31


O how I wish that my wife, just once would not slip through that bathroom door to dye her hair that ungodly brown


O how I wish that my wife, just once would let her fallacious hair rinse clear allowing her argent age to shine


If only she would, I'd gather each strand some threads white as winter rain others dark as clear champagne


O how I'd rejoice! My old bones would dance eyes delighted to witness my bride bare as a prayer in her weary regard


O how I would smile despite her frown kneeling arthritic before her crown
