The Grandfathers Clock


It sits in the hall majestically
Ticking away the time
Steadfast and true
This grandfathers clock of mine

Ticking away through the years
Ticking away through the tears
Time passes on
Things change

Children grow up
Parents die
Trials come
We don't know why

Gray hair comes
Beauty fades
My mind oft times with loved ones wades
To friends and it

Ticking away the time majestically
Steadfast and true
That grandfathers clock of mine

    One of the things that thrills me most about poetry is the ability to bring out the lovely essence of things we usually take for granted. A lovely and insightful poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Time never waits for anyone. Those who leave us leave behind many things to remind and remember them. A nice poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
