Where Have They All Gone.


Where have they all gone.
Those smiles that shone
like lights on a lake.
Or the sun
just awake.
And that silver cloud,
now captured
by a stormy shroud.
Enraptured,
we would sing out loud
before our hearts would break.
Before our world would quake
anon.
Stars that the night would don
like a tiara
from a lost aeon.
tell me,
where have they all gone.

Where have they all gone.
Just aching memories linger on.
Promises
baptized by the moon,
drowning in the ocean
too soon.
Distilled
in a blue lagoon.
Joy comes without silver spoon
To all hearts that are poor.
Yet, creeps out the back door.
Love's flowers we hung our hopes upon.
So tell me,
Where have they all gone.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
