Grandfather Clock

far beyond the hills
and patches of posies
a house on the prairie
splintered and faded
now up through the stairs
to the loft
in the hallway
where your name is
always remembered
grandfather clock
time stands you still

free me to be
with my love on the prairie
so summer through the springtime
will pass all around us
my dear's on the slopes of the moors
and whispers me secrets
sacred and timeless
