Cornwall, B. (n.d.). A Petition to Time. Retrieved from


Excerpt: TOUCH us gently, Time! // Let us glide adown thy stream // Gently - as we sometimes glide // Through a quiet dream! // Humble voyagers are we, // Husband, wife, and children three - // (One is lost - an angel, fled // To the azure overhead!) // Touch us gently, Time! // We've not proud nor soaring wings; // Our ambition, our content, // Lies in simple things. // Humble voyagers are we, // O'er life's dim unsounded sea, // Seeking only some calm clime; // Touch us gently, gentle Time!
