From Is To Was

Dayle @A Collection of Days writes in her latest post, “life is a journey of hills and valleys and we would do well to remember that neither hill nor valley lasts forever.”

What is will pour
Into what was
What waits to be
Is but a guess
Save this; the Lord
Abides with us
A Surety
To cheer and bless

Thus, we do well
To not forget
Whose hand bestows
The mystic gauze
That shapes the swell
Not unveiled yet
Of sand that flows
From Is to Was

We would do well
To remember
The tender tamp
Of numbered day
…dusk tolls a bell
Soon November
Will snuff the lamp
Of beaming May
