’Tiz Now The Time
Do you remember yesteryear
When all the world was bright?
Think you back to days gone by
When all about seemed right?
Where is that youth who longed to seek,
To question and to know
Of all that could be, was, or is
In heaven and below ?
The weight of life has bent you down
With worry and with care
As you took up the scythe and plow
And raised a family fair.
At last, at last, the time is come
For you to lift your eye
And dream once more of knowing all,
Of earth and of the sky .
The body now is nae so quick
Yet mind is ever bright
T’will light another year or two
Ere comes the endless night.
Tread now those paths you longed to roam
When you were but a child.

And tame the Beasties wild!
