Love And Time
I said, 'Love laughs at Time,' before I knew
by Charles Hanson Towne
The perfect joy of wholly loving you;
So swift the days went hurrying to that Day
When we were one--Love swept us on the way.
But now--Time laughs at Love; for swifter yet
Speed years that seem as hours! The sun will set,
The final curtain fall, our lives be done;
We will have lived--long years that seemed as one!
