The Vanished Hour

The shadow of my finger cast
Divides the future from the past;
Before it stands the unborn hour
In darkness and beyond thy power;
Behind its unreturning line
The vanished hour, no longer thine;
One hour alone is in thy hands,
The now on which the shadow stands.
-Author Unknown (Poem on a Sundial)

‘Time lost can never be retrieved. Time cannot be hoarded, only spent well.”
-J. Oswald Sanders (Spiritual Leadership, p 95)
