Yesterday, No Longer
There was once when I sang songs
To move the tedium of day along.
My voice was strong, my notes hit clear;
Heaven stooped to move more near.
I sang of love ,requited, and lost;
I sang of hearts calmed, and tossed
I sang of the moon, Diana’s chair,
I sang of him, my soul share.
But voice and he are now long gone;
Time to move this derelict along.
