The Loom of Time by Unknown Author : Dedicated to the Memory of Nicholas Tarr

This post is dedicated to my friend Nick, who tragically lost his life  in a car accident last night. He was a beloved friend to many. May you find peace wherever you are, and know that all of our lives are a little bit brighter because you were in them. You were a golden thread, my darling.

 

Man’s life is laid in the loom of time

To a pattern he does not see,

While weavers work and the shuttles fly

Till the dawn of eternity.

Some shuttles are filled with silver threads

And some with threads of gold,

While often but the darker hues

Are all that they may hold.

But the weaver watches with skillful eye

Each shuttle fly to and fro,

And sees the pattern so deftly wrought

As the loom moves sure and slow.

God surely planned the pattern;

Each thread, the dark and fair,

Is chosen by His master skill

And placed in the web with care.

He only knows its beauty,

And guides the shuttles which do hold

The threads so unattractive,

As well as the threads of gold.

Not til each loom is silent,

And the shuttles cease to fly,

Shall God reveal the pattern

And explain the reason why.

The dark threads were as needful

In the weaver’s skillful hand

As the threads of gold and silver

For the pattern which He planned.

About Chelsea McDonald

As an avid reader since I was big enough to hold a book, I continue to enjoy losing myself in the thrall of a good story on a daily basis. Since many of my cohorts do not share the same passion, Cracking Spines will be the perfect outlet to express my adulation or frustration concerning the books that cross my path. In this way, my loyal followers will be able to enjoy the stories that are worthwhile and avoid the duds altogether.
