Poem by Marion Angus

On a Birthday

Time, why are you going so fast?
    I like not furious paces.
Milestones glimmer and then are past,
    White, solemn faces.

Im coming near to Forever and Ever,
    With its flower and leaf unfalling,
Where you, poor Time, are an ancient measure,
    Fit for a dreams recalling. 

And fain am I to turn again,
    Before this journeys ended,
For a long, long look at the road I came,
    So rough and dark and  splendid!
