endure

nothing ever stays clean 

even those things left untouched 

sitting on high shelf 

held in homage and esteem 

collect dirt out of air 

dusty coating covering its shine 

beauty tarnished in time’s hands 

only in the polish,

in tender care of those things precious 

is the lasting key of 

endure
