Life Never Stands Still


PAD challenge; day 24

For today’s prompt, write a poem that responds to a statement.

*Life never stands still so wait and see what will unfold, my dear
Today the cloud that hides the hill by dawn may disappear
And where the tear that dims the eye may drive us to despair
Time may unfold a field of gold or flowers for your hair

Life never stands still and soon what is will softly dissipate
Eventually my dear, all things will come to those who wait
And then you'll see the irony; laughter and tear alike
Soon whisper where we stand and stare at echoes in the night

Life never stands still; both good and ill will fill our cup a bit
Before its spills to weighted quills or simply where we sit
And thus we learn; we love, we yearn, it is the way of men
But never will a day return to fill our cup again

 Janet Martin

*From Larkrise to Candleford
