Sonnet-Time Is Short
I must cross o'er the bridge 'fore it breaks down;
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
I must climb Life's ladder 'fore rungs give way;
I must pluck weeds 'fore the grass can be mown;
I must keep earnestly the Sabbath-Day.
I must swim ashore before the flood comes;
I must build house on ground that is hard rock;
When water falls on sugar, it forms lumps;
How long can ships be stationed in their dock?
I must store food for Winter is not far;
I must work hard for harvest to be good;
I must prepare with devils for a war;
To forget my Saviour, my heart, how could?
The Heaven’s gates will not be open long!
'Tis time I start to sing my divine song.
