Congestive Heart

Around The Corner, by Charles Hanson Towne.

Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end;
Yet days go by, and weeks rush on,
And before I know it a year has gone,
And I never see my old friend's face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell
And he rang mine. We were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men:
Tired with playing a foolish game,
Tired with trying to make a name.
"Tomorrow," I say, "I will call on Jim,
"Just to show that I'm thinking of him,"
But tomorrow comes -- and tomorrow goes.
And the distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner! -- yet miles away.
"Here's a telegram, sir . . . Jim died today."
And that's what we get, and deserve in the end,
Around the corner, a vanished friend.

The following poem was contributed
by 161st Alumni (1966-67) Ed Haser of Pittsburgh.
