First Line: Against the day of sorrow
Last Line: And a heart that is young again.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Memory


Against the day of sorrow
Lay by some trifling thing
A smile, a kiss, a flower
For sweet remembering.

Then when the day is darkest
Without one rift of blue
Take out your little trifle
And dream your dream anew.

THE GIFT OF YEARS

The mellow years have brought to me
Many a precious thing,
The infinite peace of forgetting,
The joy of remembering.

A key to earth-born melodies,
A deaf ear to its din
Eyes that see only the beautiful,
And a heart that is young again.
