The Grandfather Clock.

The Grandfather Clock.

  1. C. J. Black

Standing surely six feet tall

Its elegance filled the stately hall

Its large gold coloured hands pointing out the time

On the hour its magnificent chime.


If it could only talk, it would tell many a story

About the sadness witnessed also about the glory

To us children growing up it was just a clock

In the elders eyes it was seen as their rock.


For it helped educate us when we were small

Its chimes thought us to count, that’s one thing I recall

Its hands thought us arithmetic

At addition and subtraction it never missed a trick.


It was indeed a great conversation piece

Now long since retired to antique heaven, I hope its tick tock will never cease.
