The Seeker

By Elaine V. Emans

She sought by every means she knew
To reach the dear, enchanted place
Of being grown-up, going through
Her teens, impatient, and apace.

But now she knows the sober truth
That her enchanted land was youth,
And constantly attempts to learn
Some route by which she may return.

(1953)
