“ If Memory Fails ” ~ I’ve towed the line ~


If memory fails

And I should falter,

Take me to find

A kindly shelter,

Thus so to guide

A growing burden

Of once held pride,

To a kindly place

Of said seclusion

For a dying mind,

Whose fading use

Be running shy of time,

Thence I may sense

When memory’s failed,

I once towed my own line!
