Neither Beggar Nor Thief


Oh, it would be unfair to tear
Frail fabric gently mended
But here, tonight upon the air
The music has not ended

And though Time delves into its depths
And flings upon the tresses
Another year of life and death
Of farewell song-caresses

They linger where the heart must bear
Life’s raw un-chosen sorrow
We bravely touch the suture where
Time cannot steal nor borrow
