Time and Eternity. (Sonnet)
Rejoice today! for life is short my friend,
Seize passing time like gold, whilst you are here,
Dwell in the now, but ne'er on journey's end,
Until such curtain falls, withhold your tear.
Run into natures arms of outstretched boughs,
Behold sweet woodland sounds, much joy they bring,
If still in love, love hard ! renew your vows,
Hold tight the hand, whereon you'd place a ring.
Arise my darling, may I have this dance ?
And we will waltz together 'round life's floor,
Our eyes transfixed, lost deep in lovers trance,
Just hold me close, be mine for evermore.
When life's last failing breaths are short and few,
My final fading thought will be of you !
Time is short.
