J. H.

by Leonard M Hawkes

Now,
I loved you better
Then:
When Cattle was Economy,
And Winter
Both your Burden
And Relief.

His Rhythm
Made "the Haves"
And "the Have-nots;"
Life was the Season:
Labor, Leisure,
And the enduring Drive--
Then.

Yes, Glitter and Glow
Thrived then too
(Feasted now by Glamour and Gloss),
But if not Blood,
The Common and the Simple
Bound us--
Then.
