Time


If time is of the essence
Why do things have to decay
It keeps on marching onward
Each and every day

It doesn't wait for woman
Nor does it stop for man
They say it heals all our wounds
This I do not understand

For as long as we remember
For when we have been wronged
The healing won't have taken place
Lest we have changed our song

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
