Stop - Poem by Paul Gerard Reed

Draw breath and fill the lungs
Stop the ceaseless wind and tide,
Let go the hands from the ladder’s rungs
Lay the hour glass on it’s side;

Receive the light into the eyes
Slow the race the heart is beating,
Let wisdom grow into the wise
Stand still, for time be fleeting.
