Here you will find the Poem A Backward Glance of poet Henry Lawson

A Backward Glance

IT IS well when you?ve lived in clover,
To mourn for the days gone by?
Would I live the same life over
Could I live again? Not I!
But, knowing the false from the real,
I would strive to ascend:
I would seek out my boyhood?s ideal,
And follow it to the end.
