Fractures

The Hourglass
“Do but consider this small dust
Here running in the glass
By atoms moved;
Could you believe that this
The body was
Of one that loved?
And in his mistress’ flame, playing like a fly,
Turned to cinders by her eye?
Yes; and in death, as life, unblessed,
To haven’t expressed,
Even ashes of lovers find no rest.”

– Ben Johnson (1572-1637)
