Not So Very Long Ago....


Not so very long ago
Flowers laughed beneath our feet
Daisies bloomed white as the snow
That now lines every hill and street

Not so very long ago
Genial freedom fueled our dreams
Before the half-extinguished glow
Of bittersweet remembering

No so very long ago
Love was vague unchartered bliss
Before life's verdant ebb and flow
Revealed the bloom beneath the kiss

Not so very long ago
We wore the fancied garb of Spring
But now the fields are decked with snow
And bittersweet remembering
