Time Cannot Be Worn...

by Hart Crane

Time cannot be worn strapped to the supple wrist
Like any buckled jewel or bangle; no,
Lady, though the fingers that attach it twist
The oyster from its shell, may guide the bow
Across cool strings that lift a lasting claim
Upon Eternity. No, Lady,

[copyright Liveright Publishing, 1933]
