Good Old Days


Gone were days of old
When true beauties our eyes beheld
When decency was so bold
Immorality was a thing unfelt

Gone surely were days of old
When marriages were faithfully hold
Two hearts bound in a sacred oath
Enduring the weather, hot or cold

Where art the days of yore
When maidens flourish not in gender slur
'What a man can do, a woman does more'
When people followed Godly laws.

Days of old are surely gone
Save for tales in minds do lurk
Stealing sighs of pitiful days
Moral heritage lost to shame.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
