Photo 101 : Day 16 – Treasure


My grandfather's clock

An old Grandfather Clock at Westport House, Co Mayo.

My grandfather’s clock was too tall for the shelf
So it stood ninety years on the floor
It was taller by half than the old man himself
Though it weighed not a pennyweight more

It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born
And was always his treasure and pride
But it stopped, short never to go again
When the old man died

    Great clock photo. Quite a treasure. Here’s the “My Grandfather’s Clock” song by Johnny Cash to go with your photo and lyrics.
