A poem titled Clock and Compass typed and signed in ink by the poet Conrad Aikin. There is no date of publication, but the poem was first published by Duell Sloan and Pierce in 1942. The paper has a crease in the middle, not affecting the signature. The poem reads: The clock, man's fear of time's short hour, hums like a heart hung in a tower. The weathervane, man's fear of the west, hymnes in terror that land of rest. Together clock and weathervane rejoice in pouring sun and rain. It is in vain, and all in vain, When man is gone, we shall remain. No date listed; circa 1970.
