Elegy To Time - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

Like rainbows dissolving or love's end
We mourn the parting of friends

As the Sun travels East to West
Do we wonder where or when it will rest

In the Spring a world reborn
A child's first step this Summer's morn

Autumn's passing into Winter's night
Shows a glimmer of Heaven's light

And slowly ticks the clock and chimes
As in passing beats our time.

    Autumn's passing into Winter's night

    And slowly ticks the clock and chimes
    As in passing beats our time.
