    Have you forgotten what we were like then
    when we were still first rate
    and the day came fat with an apple in its mouth

    it's no use worrying about Time
    but we did have a few tricks up our sleeves
    and turned some sharp corners

    the whole pasture looked like our meal
    we didn't need speedometers
    we could manage cocktails out of ice and water

    I wouldn't want to be faster
    or greener than now if you were with me O you
    were the best of all my days

    Frank O'Hara [1950]
