Lost Yesterday…


Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset,

Two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes.

No reward offered, for they are gone forever.

    Hello Lisa!

    Are these lines are considered to be a saying? Or is it (part of) a verse?
    Thanks for sharing it is really very moving.

    Hi Tinker Jack,

    I would consider this to be a quotation. It was written by Horace Mann (1796 – 1859), an American educational reformer. It doesn’t seem to be part of another verse.

    If so, how come you did not indicate the author in the entry? This is the way you always do!

    Best regards,

    I felt it was easier to “hear” the words with no text around it.
