The Hourglass


clear glass with red sand grainer

Your Mama knew I loved you boy

before you ever did see.

She said I have a poet’s soul

I thought no one could see.



I guess I always loved you boy

though I never really knew.

When we’re young and wild

It’s a wonder that we do.



Where did all the time go boy

sand through the hourglass?

Young love they say is magic

just like splendor in the grass.
