"after low these many years"
Good heavens, sir! And you call yourself a writer? In what language, pray tell? You certainly ought to know that in English the expression is "lo" in that context, as in the famous Adrian Mole book "Lo! The Flat Hills of my Homeland"...his first novel.
From Middle English lo, loo, from Old English lā. Conflated in Middle English by lo!, a corruption of lok!, loke! ("look!") (as in lo we! (look we!)). Cognate with Scots lo, lu ("lo"). See also look.
