Will in time Knit façade, Like a mask For the mind, Blinds fate past!
Shades – of time –
Seem out of place Fate’s shades of time, Too soon effaced A once upon sublime, Find lost in waist Humanity’s sad define, Tho truth known Rashly yours and mine!
– adjudged end unknown –
As I recall now, Of early dawn The gods avow, Scant paragon Be held to end, As I grow wise Find so intend, To forever thrive, In minds eye norm Be of fates trickeries, Adjudged end unknown!
