'Dreaming of salad days'


‘Dreaming of salad days’

Many meals ago
I would only eat
As gourmet would eat
The finest ingredients
In the best of restaurants

Many drinks ago
I would only drink
As a connoisseur would drink
The finest of wines
From the best vineyards

Many sleeps ago
I would only sleep
Between silken sheets
In a four poster bed
In the best hotels

Now I sleep on wooden benches
With sheets made from newspapers
I’d be happy and content
If I had the luxury
Of bread and water

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
