Those Olden, Golden Days!


Those Olden, Golden Days! (A Rondel of 13 lines)

'Those olden, golden days' she said,
'Recalled can be only in mind.
For ever they've been left behind
And won't return, for they are dead.

We therefore can but look ahead
At days to come, cruel or kind.
Those olden, golden days', she said,
'Recalled can be only in mind.

Those days of yore, to values wed -
Though all the clocks we backward wind -
Will stage no 'comeback'. None can find
Them, eternally having fled
Those olden, golden days', she said.
