.Yesterdays Favorite


Yesterdays favourite looks on in envy
Corrupted by the ironies of time
Regrets merged with memories
How fine she was in her prime
Yesterdays sweetheart is bitter
Life is passing by
Anything once was possible
But effort she did not apply
Yesterdays dream is maudlin
Struck by unrequited rage
In the mirror she sees her nightmare
Rotting and riddled with age
Yesterdays girl is distant
Yesterday was so long ago
Anything might have been possible
Now it’s to late to know

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
