Greek ruins
 

Time at last sets all things even. ~ Byron

Seeking things beyond their reach;
But the heart grows sick of hoping
Ere it learns what life can teach;
For, before the fruit be gathered,
We must see the blossoms fall;
And time waiting time, my brothers,
Is the hardest time of all.
~ Sarah D. Clark

No follies to have to repent,
But reflect on the past, and be able to say
That my time has been properly spent. ~ Jane Taylor

Gently -- as we sometimes glide
Through a quiet dream.

That slightly shakes his parting guest by the hand,
And with his arms outstretch'd as he would fly,
Grasps in the comer ....
