Graves of Dreams
By Robert Rand
SO softly bright the golden twilight hung
Over the graveyard where my dead dreams lay.
In other times I often passed that way—
You see, they died so pitifully young!
But now I shun the graying line on line,        5
For sterner tombs are rising, crowding there,
And dreams are dead full-grown, and fair—oh, fair!
Soon shall they all be dead, and none be mine.
