'For Old Sake's Sake.'

'For old sake's sake!' 'Twere hard to choose
Words fitter for and old-world Muse

Excerpt from The Ballad of Beau Brocade: And Other Poems of the Xviiith Century

'For Old Sake's Sake.'

'For old sake's sake!' 'Twere hard to choose
Words fitter for and old-world Muse
Than these, that in their cadence bring
Faint fragrance of the posy-ring,
And charms that rustic lovers use.

Life's journey lengthens, and we lose
The first pale flush, the morning hues, -
Ah! but the back-look, lingering,
For old sake's sake!

That we retain. Though Time refuse
To lift the veil on forward views,
Despot in most, he is not King
Of those kind memories that cling
Around his travelled avenues
For old sake's sake!
