    Against time and tide

    You will correct
    And act
    For the generations ahead
    And well read

    Give no second thought
    As we have fought
    Against time and tide
    Now you have to decide

    I am, the tower told, felled by a timeless stroke,
    Who razed my wooden folly stands aghast, - - - - - - I haven't slept in days now, so maybe that is why I keep seeing The Tower of Babel in myriad places in this poem

    Do you not father me, nor the erected arm
    For my tall tower's sake cast in her stone?
    Do you not mother me, nor, as I am,
    The lovers' house, lie suffering my stain?
    Do you not sister me, nor the erected crime
    For my tall turrets carry as your sin?
    Do you not brother me, nor, as you climb,
    Adore my windows for their summer scene? Ecellent written

    Stunning and perpetually epic for all ages & genres....An empowering theme of Never Give Up for what your Heart and providence says is all good and righteous'''....Tho' you're gone from this poetic plane...You still fly high o'er it and around it....You Rock, indeed! (Report) Reply
