Where Past and Future Pause...





Leafless batons strum the air
Yesterday is out of reach
We are always walking where
Now has much to tell and teach

Yesterday is out of reach
But today is full and free
Death by death its breaths beseech
Us to touch and taste and see

We are always walking where
Yesterday and morrow shore
What has been or waits to bare
That which none has seen before

Leafless batons strum the air
Where the bud has bled its plume
Past and future tarry where
Today is in fullest bloom
