#17 How Sly is Time

Updated: Oct 8


I keep a mirror near at hand,

though not for vain review of face,

but that - as falls the hour's sand,

I mark my distance in the race.

How sly is time to tiptoe nigh

and mar so smooth a skin with care -

how readily the smooth thoughts die

and make this shell a monster's lair.
