Count of Time


Time teaches
Many a lesson
Wisdom of time
Clockwise we say
Burdens seem to turn
Counterclockwise
Time's standard
As earth turns
Day, hours, seconds
A pendulum swing
Counting the pulses
Of cesium atom
Modern wisdom
It's all digital
Number increases
And keeps increasing
Time's analog
We digitize
And round it off.

    Very good Tirupathi! Time is one of the
    most precious things yet we do not use it
    wisely. The hands of the clock can be turned back,
    but time still goes on. Back in the days time was
    told by the rising and setting of the sun, shadows
    during the days and by the animals and nature.
    A thoughtful write. (Report) Reply
