That Brute Father time


That brute ‘Father Time’:
Wont you shave your scraggly beard?
Or stop this exam?
And yet, why are you revered?
Time drains-on too quick,
Halt thy mortal purest sand,
And relent to sleep—
For a time to me withstand.

  1. Great question–WHY is he revered? Wonderful work, Iain–and I’m planning to post your photo/my poem tomorrow (unless I get a Valentine poem at the 11th hour…). Have a much-blessed day.
