Adieu

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Adieu Adieu ! thy plaintive anthem fades.

Past the near meadows over the still stream,

up the hill-side ; and now ’tis buried deep

in the next valley glades :

Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Fled is that music:…do I wake or sleep ?

Ode to a nightingale by John KEATS

Youth was cheap-wherefore we sold it. Gold was good-we hoped to hold it,

And today we know the fulness of our gain.
