A conversation with Time


Time, Time.
Will you pass?
Can't sit anymore in class,
His voice is quiet, I can't hear,
Can't write, and it's boring here.

'I do pass my child, slow,
Already old am I, exhausted so.
And to me it's boring too,
Circles, and cycles, all my life, is all I do.'

Time, Time,
Sometimes, you pass so quick,
How can you do this,
If you are so weak?

'Well dear, it's in your mind,
Look inside, and you will find
That all year round I move the same,
But you, just now, understand the game.

When you think of me, I give a chance,
Maybe for a fine, long, glance.
And then child, you see?
You do think of me.

However, when you are amused
You don't think of me, I feel unused,
Then I let myself fly
And then you say 'How time goes by' '

Time, Time, I thank thee
For the long answer you answered me
Now I really have to go,
And feel happy that I know.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
