First Line: Time will tell us: only wait
Last Line: Ripens day by day.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Time


Time will tell us: only wait;
He alone the secret knows,
He alone the Delphic gate
Shuts or open throws.

Time will tell us: kind is he;
Sorrow wins not by delay,
But the wine of joy to be
Ripens day by day.
