L’Envoi
By Marion Strobel
 
From “Song Sketches”

THE MOMENTS reach and touch the hours gently.
Each is kind,
Each is soothing as the tips
Of fingers held to lips.
 
The moments reach and touch the hours: flowers        5
Will bloom again,
And I shall pick fresh jonquils for the room;
And I shall pick fresh jonquils in the usual way
Every day.
 
The moments reach and touch the hours:        10
Time has no beginning, and no end,
Dear friend.
