Patience Worth

Wait, wait, wait!
With thy fetters champing, thou wouldst on!
With heavy feet, thou wouldst flee!
With thy hands bound, thou wouldst labor!
Oh wait, wait, wait!
Wait, wait, wait!
Like the surge, swinging heavily
Against the shifting sands,
It hath echoed since Time-
Wait, wait, wait!
Wait, wait, wait!
Oh, hark to its cadence!
Never wearying, never tiring-
Ever uttering: wait, wait, wait!
Wait; the symbol of Eternity!
