I plucked a flower from a tree
Then I forgot that I had.
(It was fat and grinning wide)

It waited for some time for me
For a glance or less;
Perhaps it cried.

Alone with a sun so sultry
Hurt by my affection
It shriveled up, and died.

Eldorado Forgotten (Eldorado VI)

Eldorado Forgotten

If I toil hard enough,
If I dig deep enough --

Perhaps I may find
What I forgot in time;
My old eyes may taste
A sight of golden grace,
Perhaps I may remember
A color or a number,
A name to those dreams
Of gold & golden themes,
Which dance in my memory,
Which I recall just barely,
Perhaps I may land
On the never never land --

If I sail far enough,
If I toil hard enough.
