The sieve of time, it's said, will sift
Which writers' work is set to last:
Who has a true, enduring gift,
Who's history when their moment's passed.

But from this sieving who's to say
This later verdict will be just?
Which residue will new scales weigh--
The solids or the filtered dust?

~Bill Webster
