GOLDEN their days have been, for love is golden—"Lines for a Fiftieth Anniversary" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in The Unconquered Air (1912).
Golden as sunshine warm with life, not cold;
Lighting earth's pathway with the blessing olden
That never groweth old.
It owns no Past; a help divine in sorrow,
A strength to overmaster each annoy,
Love holds the faithful promise of a morrow,
Immortal in its joy!
