Aging Eyes

My aging eyes don't see
(any more) with the clarity
sharp-focused of my youth,
love's purity and truth
and stark primality

I think of her and she
makes yearnings stir in me.
(They're not yet siren-proof,
my aging eyes.)

I toy with ways that we
might mesh, how we might be
interlocked - tongue and groove,
with her warped to meet my woof.
But the view's pure fantasy
of my aging eyes.

This follows the pattern of a rondeau, but is in trimeter, rather than tetrameter, and uses a sprung rhyme to enhance the intended wry-comic tone.
