Growing old

Now that you are moved over from being uncle to grandfather, do you have two new green horns? A little girl in the river island first calls you uncle and later revises her address as grandfather. Did she spot horns?

The old men are in their river islands and tiny moths make  halos around their shore lanterns . Little Bengali girls reach over and touch their horns. The halos of the moths shake with the lanterns shadow.

* Green horns

Once you are recent old ,you spot two new shiny green horns on your head.

Now you are a greenhorn old man.
