My Grandfather's clock was too large for the shelf 

So it stood ninety years on the floor 

It was taller by half than the old man himself 

Yet it weighed not a pennyweight more 

It was bought on the morn on the day that he was born 

It was always his treasure and pride 

But it stopped, short, never to go again 

When the old man died
