Freeman’s Jounal

A Backward Glance


Henry Lawson

IT IS well when you’ve lived in clover,
    To mourn for the days gone by—
Would I live the same life over
    Could I live again? Not I!
But, knowing the false from the real,
    I would strive to ascend:
I would seek out my boyhood’s ideal,
    And follow it to the end.
