The orchards of our mothers,
And hearts that we broke long ago
Have long been breaking others.”

From - 04/18/17:

When I was 28, I was teaching English to high school freshmen. Fridays were dress-down days.

One Friday I came to school wearing a college sweatshirt and jeans. A student took a look at me and his eyes widened.

“Wow!” he said. “You should wear jeans every day, you look twenty or thirty years younger.”

Once Upon a Time

From the 1962 Broadway Musical,
All American
Music by
Charles Strouse (b. 07 June 1928); Lyrics by Lee Adams (b. 14 Aug 1924)

Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine
And said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars
And waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time
Now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed as though
Tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care
Where did it go?

Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again
