The pages curl

with passing time,

residing in a youthful whirl

of sparkling rhyme.

To yet renew

within our lives,

a brighter flame

moving through,

the mundane tasks

that drag us down…

and out amongst

the will of man,

of sea and sand

to lead us to…

the promised land.

Our spirits rise

we bid farewell,

beneath the guise

of “time will tell.”
