NUMBER:7187
AUTHOR:John Godfrey Saxe (1816–1887)
QUOTATION:I’m growing fonder of my staff;
  I’m growing dimmer in the eyes;
I’m growing fainter in my laugh;
  I’m growing deeper in my sighs;
I’m growing careless of my dress;
  I’m growing frugal of my gold;
I’m growing wise; I’m growing—yes,—
  I’m growing old!
ATTRIBUTION:I’m growin old.
