Kansas City Beautiful ~ Poems About the Places We Love

Drawings by Esther Boquist.

SUN DIAL

 The sun dial stands where busy traffic throngs,
Where men and women pass from far and near,
Intent on worldliness that day prolongs,
Unheeding, with no thought of time's career.
For centuries its dial has told the years,
That bear the load of time into the past;
The vanished past's finale never veers,
Nor grants return again to ages vast.

To you, who are the heir of infinite days,
It speaks in protest at your eager haste;
Then pause a moment, to this motto's phrase
Give silent heed -- a moment is no waste --
"Enrich the hours of sunshine while you may,
Cloud shadows fall and comes the close of day."
