THE LAND OF BEGINNING AGAIN
BY LOUISA FLETCHER TARKINGTON
I wish that there were some wonderful place
Calltd the Land of Beginning Again,
Where all our mistakes and all o'ur heartaches
And all of our poor, selfish grief
Could be dropped, like a shabby old coat, at the door,
And never put on again.
I wish we could come on.it all unaware,
Like the hunter who finds a lost trail;
And I wish that the one whom our blindness had done:
The greatest injustice of all
Could be at the gates, like an old friend that waits
For the comrade he's gladdest to hall.
We would find all the thing we intended to do
But forgot, and remembered too late,
Little praises unspoken, little promises broken,
And all the thousand and one
Little duties neglected that might have perfected
The day for one less fortunate.
It wouldn't be possible not to be kind
In the Land of Beginning Again;
And the ones we misjudged and the ones whom we grudgedT
Their moments of victory here
Would find in the grasp of our loving hand-clasp
More thhn penitent lips could explain.
For what had been hardest we'd know had been best,
And what had seemed lost would be gain;
For there isn't a sting that will not take wing
When we've faced itand laughed it away;
- And I think that the laughter is most what we're after
In the Land of Beginning Aggin!
8o I wish that that there were some wonderful place
Called the Land of Beginning again,
Where all our mistakes and all our heartaches
And all our poor, selfish grief
Could be dropped, like a shabby old coat, at the door,
Aiid never put on again.
