Ladies, how many times have you actually run into a man that reminds you of one of those great old movies?

Yesterdays Gone


I look around seeking a familiar sound

Of a voice that fancied yesterdays gone

The subtle whispers in the wind of better times

With remembrance of the old drive -in movie screens

Where chivalry seemed larger than any form of mysterious, pleasure unseen


And yet a fresh pounce of a once a pond a yesterday

Where life was full of play

When love, romance and more simple things were all that there were


In a world that seemed to have vanished before my eyes

A smooth, refreshing surprise of the sound of old Blue-Eyes

Reminding me of yesterdays, when Frank ruled the World of many girls


My eyes gazed upon a gentle man, mature in age, as he was

Touching my tenderness with a golden glove full of promises never seen or heard

Not one word


As I envisioned a mind as fresh and exciting, revealing days of golden times

I could only hope to have experienced in my youthfulness

The comfort and presence of this familiar voice

I simply had no choice


I followed the sound of dazzling energy into an old Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart Movie

By a man I knew had experienced those times

How divine!


For me to find, a man from those days when character and charm

Were worn on every man’s arm,

When love took a girl way beyond, That familiar sound of a voice that fancied yesterdays gone

Enjoyably nostalgic read.

Those qualities that have slowly disappeared. Yet, they have something universally appreciated and expected. Interesting subject!

Reviewed by Z McClure 4/17/2011
Sounds like what the Apostle Peter was referring to in the book bearing his name. The strong, inner quality that does not fade with age, but only grows sweeter and more valuable with maturity.
Great write Kathryn!

Hello Kathryn, and Happy New Year -- thanks for sharing your poem. And those days for most are gone, but a few of us remember how to treat a Queen and to admire a Princess.

Just released new CD --- I Will Live Forever and so shall those days.
