Yearning For Bygone Days


Where are those sweet days?
When I was only a child
Worldly affairs had not spoiled my mind
The root cause of happiness
Lay in my innocent ignorance
I was as pure as white snow
How to deceive others I did not know
In God I had a great faith
Though much I was afraid of death
Love for me was only a question
That I could think without any tension
Going to school for me so far
Was like going to an endless war
Teachers approaching with duster and chalk
Appeared to me like a fearful hawk
The lecture proved to me a complete threat
I did not want them forever to meet
Homework for me was a huge burden
I had to ask them always for pardon
Gone are the days spent is the age
Trapped I am in a parrot’s cage
Longing for those beautiful days
Can anyone tell me where are they?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
