Elegy To Time

Like rainbows dissolving or love's end
We mourn the parting of friends

As the Sun travels East to West
Do we wonder where or when it will rest

In the Spring a world reborn
A child's first step this Summer's morn

Autumn's passing into Winter's night
Shows a glimmer of Heaven's light

And slowly ticks the clock and chimes
As in passing beats our time.

Cleaver poem. Good write
Another poem about death, Poem Hunter's apparent theme for the day. Very well done. I enjoyed this one very much, although I'm not sure how MODERN it is, since the poet died in 1935.
Very wonderful little poem of loss... Seems to be the flavor of the day - what with Emily Dickinson's poem 'My Life Closed Twice' also chosen for today's daily read...
A lovely poem and an enjoyable little read.
