The Moment

– but a second be –

Ye learn forever 
Be but a second,
Tho endeavour
To find extend,
Be the moment
We fix pretend,
In prolong time
Albeit beckons,        
To expand clock
Ye gods do lend,
We reckon mock
As would eternal,
Beyond instant
Of kept normal,
As said forever
Held in thought,
Fate opts clever
Set close to lost,
Blink of an eye
Nay to be found,
One day or other
For ye’d be gone,
After the moment 
Ne’er meant long,
Those waning days
Fixate a mind to see,
Of set persistent way
Has but the moment be!    


for my sister, Pierrette...
