Synopsis: FROM PROLOGUE: "We are so near to those who dwellIn the dear land whereof I tell!Sometimes when we are far astray,Their spirit-hands may guide our way;And if we would but pause to hear,What whispered words of tender cheerMight come on those fine airs that blowFrom the strange Land of Long Ago! The scenes are changed, but we and theyAre actors in the same old play.Their blood is in our throbbing veins;Their hopes and joys, their griefs and pains,Bind us fore'er to squire or churl,To stately dame or laughing girl,?Those shades that wander to and froIn the dim Land of Long Ago. Then let the present hour go by.Turn back awhile, and you and IThrough quiet garden paths may strayWhere blooms the rose of yesterday,May meet brave men and women fair Who sang life's song to simple air;Mark how their homely virtues glow!?O pleasant Land of Long Ago!"
