Yesterday and Tomorrow


Years of strength, and of power.
A glorious present
The heady swagger of muscle
Easy contempt of youth

You look at the children
You look at the old
Forgetting your past
That you too will be old.

Will posterity remember your lines
Your poem
Your book
Or your film?

In twilight, in eddies of subconscious
Ebbing questions of fear, and faith
Will you be here next year
Who will you be next year?
