Many Springs Have Passed

by Guy Brewster Young

Many springs have passed
Since the fatal end
Of a dream that
Once was a reality

– for those
who cherished
love, equality
and service
to others

– for some
nothing more
than forgotten
seasons past

– for others
a memory
of tears

– for me
an end
of beginning
