Another Poem By A Poet Long Gone - Untitled

Rating: 5.0
To Eleanor Agnin

The world grows sadder round us,
As years are rolled on years:

Link after link, that bound us
To Earth, dissolves in tears.

The past: how deeply shaded
With sorrow's sombre hue!

I did enjoy this poem very much. 'Fond early hopes how faded'-almost the story of my life. It's good that you have made the letter to be written by a character- a parson in the manse. It gives a Protestant tone.

Michael, George Junkin was president of Washington College. Thomas Jackson lived with the family and married daughter Elinor Ellie Junkin. Thomas became Confederate General Stonewall Jackson. I believe this is his father-in-law's poem. The family journal filled with poetry is one of a kind and was found at a Utah swap meet.

This is a fantastic poem. Great rhyme and meter. Uncle D. Junkin did a great job with this one.
