Ago


Long ago
I still see their faces glow
Those people who i grew to know
And loved along the way.
Girls i miss
And never got to kiss
Men's camaraderie
Stole them away from me
Our gang was free and young
All rebel songs were sung
And now that girl in red
Remains within my head
Unaged
But caged
By time.
Enraged, i lose her with this rhyme
Until the reader weeps
For the memories he keeps.
Our boldest Broadway show
That youth stole
Long ago.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
