A Set Time (Hexastichon)


A time for birth and a time for death
King Solomon wrote a truth all men face,
It's the way of all flesh, so defined and set
That none can escape, so accept with grace.
No denials nor fear, nor amount of technology
Can hinder the time, for Death comes faithfully.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
