Grandfather Clock

Cog clog
In case
Gaunt hands
On face
Pendulum
Unhung
Mainspring
Now sprung
Gong gone
Cables crossed
Dial dim
Key lost
Chain-pulls
Untracked
Finial
All cracked
No bezel
No escape
Flaky finish
Duct tape
Manufacture
Unknown
Balance bad
Cuckoo flown
Movement
Run down
Missing tension
Wind-up
Unwound
Spent suspension
A spirit
A movement
A quiet grace
Shone once clearly
From your face
The soul of Nature
So enthused you
You were true
But it abused you
So sad
Granddad
Time you slept
Quite unkept by
What you kept
