by Henry Lawson, 1897

A Backward Glance


    It is well when you've lived in clover,
    To mourn for the days gone by,
    Would I live the same life over
    Could I live again? Not I!
    But, knowing the false from the real,
    I would strive to ascend:
    I would seek out my boyhood's ideal,
    And follow it to the end.
