The Passage Of Years


The passage of years advanced me no more
Naivety of youth was my climax
When my dreams transcended all realities
Miracles seemed quite possible then
A liberal could achieve his hears'desires
But I have been continuously descending ever since
Lost in the bewildering triteness of life
None of my later days equaled the previous ones
As I now push the cooled ashes aside
The hidden fire flares up anew from the underneath
Catching my whole heart once again
Burning or saving whichever it may
I must keep this fire alight
And raise myself from the lowermost of this abyss
To my previous climax.

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
