Time’s first minute is an hour,

Her richest moment to flower.

Her greatest gift is a smile;

But only so a while.

Then Rome glittered at its peak,

So Heaven sank to the East.

So dusk turns to darker day.

Nothing beautiful can stay.

Inspired by “Nothing Gold Can Stay”…








I whisper to the wind,

A kiss,

For you alone,

It is a wish I give,

To find you,

Wherever you roam.

It may not be welcomed,

From person unknown.

But this whisper is signed,

From someone,

Who loved you,

Long ago.

Dear Mother,

Do you remember telling me?

“I am the safety of the harbour!

You are the ship I built you to be.

Set sail! See the Seven Seas!

If you encounter stormy weather,

You have my blessing,

To return to me.

You may return to my harbour,
