Ecclesiastes, Chapter 12:2

VERSE 2:  MANHOOD …New Sailor


“While the sun, or the light, or the moon,  or the stars, be not darkened,” refers to the fact that as we grow older, our eyes begin to fail. 

It is also an allegory to remembering back to the time when life looked bright with promise before the “twilight years” and “sunset years” of our lives.  

“nor the clouds return after the rain:”  Rest and recuperation take longer as we age.
