Poetry of Kansas

At a Teachers College

What flamed across your path at this late day, burned
        out,
    And left you looking tired?
The years you should have spent here, held you festive
        rout,
    Then red-cheeked and admired?
Or by something sacrificial, immolating, was your soul
    In self-denial fired?
.   .   .  Or shiftless, dreamless, year by year, a wit of clay,
    Have you been slowly mired ?

__Margaret E. Haughawout.
