Poem of the Week: Title, If Any, Unknown

TITLE, IF ANY, UNKNOWN

“All things to nothingness descend,
Grow old and die and meet their end,
Man dies, iron rusts, wood goes decayed,
Flowers fall, walls crumble, roses fade …
Nor long shall any name resound
Beyond the grave, unless ‘t be found
In some clerk’s book, it is the pen
Gives immortality to men.”

Master Wace – from his Chronicles of the Norman Dukes
Found on the Chart of Harold F Umstott (1907-1922)
