The golden hours that April brought are spent.
Unmindful of the value of a day,
I lavishly bestowed them all. Now May
Is here; and I have paused in solemn bent
To count my profit, or perchance repent
If folly's all I've gained. Long hours of play
I find -- some duties done, some dreams, and gay
Hours interspersed with pain and discontent.

I really wanted comradeship above
All else; and worthy tasks, not pantomime;
I wanted purple hills, and books, and love,
And song. Ah, well! I cannot hoard my time,
Nor keep it save in memory; yet I
Should learn to choose more wisely when I buy.
