James W. Lee, Jr.

Thomas Wolfe has written a story titled YOU CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN. With apologies to him, I say you can, and I have a story to prove it.

This little poem is written to my first little sweetheart, that "Sweet Little Girl" on page 40.

The early years are wasteful years,
Abundant days of spring;
and bees are probing all the flowers,
with ne'er a thought of what the next might bring.

The middle years are fruitful years,
and summer roses smile.
beneath a bright and azure sky,
could cure our ills if we would rest a while.

The later years are frugal years,
we only have a few,
filled with a tender longing for,
the things we did, and things we failed to do.
