Your silence is enchanting.

With grace you have grown old.

What secrets you must keep,

What memories you must hold.


Like sentinel time keepers

You’ve seen many come and go.

If only you could talk

What tales could be told!


Time is but your plaything

Representing years

Of slow but steady progress

Of heartbreak, toil and tears.


Though now you see the fruits

Of what was once a dream,

Plans are ever in the making

For new goals to be redeemed.
