The Spoonbill Generator

A Vain Attempt in English to Accommodate Divers

The hour of innocence, of hopes and dreams [TG]

Though etched upon the sundial of our youth [Roland]

Refracted through the pyramid of hope [TG]

Becomes an edifice that is uncouth [Apsley]

And as its minutes pass with fleeting tread [Roland]

Sketched briefly on the clock-face of old age [fester]

(Experience has etched its lines thereon) [dkb]

We realise we've filled another page [Beefy]
