Poetry of Kansas

At a Teachers College

What flamed across your path at this late day, burned
    And left you looking tired?
The years you should have spent here, held you festive
    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 ?
