Yesterday, Today Forever by Ruth Naylor

Breezes of Barth, Beethoven,
And airs of Aristotle
Breathe through a campus
Planted for questing in Truth.
The harvest is libraried inside.

Open communication lines
Show signs of caring
In a pulp beaten world
Where slicks oil nature
And suffocate the Word.

Faces in window clocks
Change as the years run down;
Community lamps grow dim
Then brighten with new life.
Eternity ticks in the present.

–Ruth Naylor
