A DIM DOORWAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Forty years rolled back the curtain
Last Line: Laughter I had lost so long.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Time

Forty years rolled back the curtain;
Standing at a fragrant door
I'm a child, with bright hopes laden
Lush with love and life once more.

Forty years, the days unravel
Softly, evenly as though
I were gazing in a doorway
Where I stood long, long ago.

Just a simple fragrance brought me
Back, where all my dreams belong
Just a fragrance, and my heart found
Laughter I had lost so long.
