Last line as first line

We Write Poetry pops up with interesting prompts. Recently, they suggested we take a powerful (or just any) last line from an old poem we have written, and use it to start up a new one. I accidentally came by this particular one, and thought it might as well be a nice opening line.

Both are in English. Here is the new one:


Beyond my reason

Yesterday

and days roll by so tenderly

Beyond my memory

remain

the falling tears of

harmony

Beyond the feel

of passing years

they flutter pinching at my ears

and laughing gravely

Beyond my reason

and then again

beyond

the thunderstorm of home

    That was beautiful – beyond all reason. ?

    Sorry – not sure where that question mark came from. It was totally unintended.
