Thoughts for Tuesday


BOYHOOD
Ah, then how sweetly closed those crowded days!
The minutes parting one by one like rays,
That fade upon a summer’s eve.
But O, what charm or magic numbers
Can give me back the gentle slumbers
Those weary, happy days did leave?
When by my bed I saw my mother kneel,
And with her blessing took her nightly kiss;
Whatever Time destroys, he cannot this; -
E’en  now that nameless kiss I feel.
Washington Allston
