The Ravages of Time

By E. C. Fisher

The dawn of the sun, the glow of dusk’s falling light

On a hill overlooking the valley

Through my window; the passage of time shines


The seasons pass; leaves turn green to brown and fall

Temperatures change from hot to cold; green grass to white snow

The ravages of time are not kind


My body weakens; youthful to old; I sit here and decay

The trees wilt; the sun rises and sets

The ravages of time are not kind


Life flows on; the light through my window wanes

The moon shines in the valley; high above the sparkle of the stars

Through my window it shines; the passage of time


A century beyond my age has passed; my window is left and only it remains

It overlooks the valley which has forgotten my presence

The seasons continue to pass; time rages on; beneath the green grass and white snow

The ravages of time are not kind
