The Chant of Time

Time was when worlds were not swung in space;
Time is, when this year’s New Year’s masque ye see;
And Time goes on when worlds have stopped their race;

Past.
Before the moon disclosed her face;
Before the earth began her race;
Before the Sun took up his place-
Ere than I was eternally!

Present.
In throb of brain; in beat of heart;
In thrill of sense, by nature’s art;
In meeting moments ere they part-
Therein am I eternally!

Future.
Beyond man’s certain day of doom
When earth and sun have found one tomb;
When stars for other stars make room-
I shall be there eternally!

Time was, Time is and time shall be
Eternally! Eternally!
