March 18, 1953 - Chicago

Yesteryear

A superb time,
A long ago nursery rhyme,
Distant bells chime,
Grassy hills to climb.

Grandfather's clock,
The crowing of the cock,
Doors they didn't lock,
A lady's smock.

Days precious and rare,
Died in summer's glare.
The ghost lives on in memory, I'm aware-
The ghost to whom I am heir.

Faraway train,
Distant fields of cane,
Windowpane, windowpane,
Looking back at the lane.
