Lost Time Cannot Be Restored

Lost wealth may be restored by Industry,

The wreck of health regained by temperance,

Forgotten knowledge restored by study,

Alienated friendship smoothed by forgetfulness,

Even forfeited reputation won by penitence and virtue.


But who ever looked upon his vanished hours,

Recalled his slighted years,

Stamped them with wisdom,

Or effaced from heaven’s record the fearful blot of wasted time?

                                                                                      – Mrs. Sigourney
