Men dream of tomorrow to get through today
Like children detained from an evening of play
Will press their sore noses against frosted glass
And savour the sight of bare feet on the grass.
Men dream of tomorrow, but clocks do not lie
Like reveries that unrest beneath do belie,
For time flows like blood from wounds rankling and deep,
And dreams are but wishes that morn cannot keep.
