HOW LITTLE TIME

How little Time we know
How small a part of all the Time

Less than specks in galaxies of dust-

Little little little
Our Time is
And vast beyond vast
The Time we will never experience
And understand-

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
