MIDDLE AGE BLUES
Together, we were lovers, in our hearts-
Cherubic cupid shot his loving darts.
And minds were filled with such utopian schemes,
And giddy were our, lofty grandiose dreams,
But to-day we are wisened worldly men,
And slaves to rational, limited acumen.
So when we looks ahead or look behind,
We see no lofty minarets of mind.
In past or present times, sharp and hear,
Some twenty busy years intervene-
And future holds no terror in its store
For us to stir and move. No furore,
Or sinful escapades with the dames,
Who now are merely hallow sounding names.
