In Time

*


In Time...



Paul Barwick




Only a man harrowing clods
In a slow silent walk
With an old horse that stumbles and nods
Half asleep as they stalk








Alexander Mann




Only a thin smoke without flame
From the heaps of couch grass
Yet this will go onward the same
Though dynasties pass











Yonder a maid and her wight
Come whispering by
Wars annals will cloud into night
Ere their story die







~



In Time of the Breaking of Nations
Thomas Hardy

  2. Hi Martin

    I added this poem to my collection of poetry when I was in my early twenties...many many moons ago, although it was only yesterday...and I still love it...

    happy days

  4. Hi Steven,
    another new day for you...early bird that you are...
    I am contemplating taking myself off to bed...with my Lisa See Book about little Peony.

    Are you enjoying the mid semester break? Our schools have a two week break for Easter.

    Happy days

  5. I love the serene photos and gentle words this Sunday morning, Delwyn. I also loved the book... Peony in Love, Lisa See is a favorite author.

  7. Good morning Wanda

    I'm glad you liked a touch of Thomas Hardy...and his truths...

    I am enjoying Peony in Love. On my holiday I read the Shanghai Sisters and was very disappointed. While the background was interesting the story lacked her usual detail and failed to draw me in.

    Happy days Wanda

  8. Good morning Rosaria,
    I read a lot of Thomas Hardy when I was young and could cope with the bleakness of his writing...this poem is different...

    Happy days

  12. Hi tracy

    I googled the pictures to match the top two verses and had the third in a collection.

    Thanks for noticing the changes. I have added a couple of new images but all the poems were there...It just appears different with the new crisp format. The side bar seems bigger than before, and also on the right now. Its funny how we see things differently when repositioned.

    Happy days
