I am the last snow flake to fall with early spring-
And the last old goose in winter to take wing.
I知 the lone wolf of the wild, who痴 grown too old-
To forage, so I perish in the cold.

I知 the last faint twinkle in a dimming eye-
Of an old man, when it comes his time to die.
I知 the last tear drop of every broken heart-
I知 the first step of the ones who never start.

I am the residue of everything that痴 good-
The ashes of a structure which once stood...
I知 the broken vows which never seem to last..
I guess I am the ghost of Christmas past.

I知 the sound which falls on every deafened ear-
And to the blind the vision so unclear....
I知 billows found upon the placid sea-
In a word, I guess you壇 say that I am ME!

Great poem, what's it doing down here it needs to be up there where everyone can see it!!

Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.
