Graves Reflective Poems

Just as this world keeps on turning in space

New children are born to the human race.

    They all find the time for both fighting and fun

    But all things soon end, as they all have begun.

 

Life passes quickly, there isn’t a doubt,

With harvests, famines, floods and drought;

    The winters of snow and the summers of sun

    But all things soon end, as they all have begun.

 

Use your time wisely - do the best that you can

And make the world happier for your fellow man,

    For your candle will flicker and life then is done

    For all things soon end, as they all have begun.
