The Fate of the Hourglass

By Richard Splett

Oh, ye herald of the fleeting seconds!

Ye umpire of the vanishing years!

You mark our moments

As you mock our mortality.

But who shall count your days, cruel glass?

For they, too, are numbered.

And who shall mourn when thy crystal shatters

And thine own sands run out?
