Always Time before Time

Always time before Time 21 Apr 2017                                                                                  

ALWAYS time

before TIME

before any TIME

IN TIME

after time

SAY it play it

a mystery RHYME

AND in those spaces

in long lost PLACES

EVEN music keeps

the BEAT in TIME

And if you still

don’t believe in Time

forget about it

live without it

Then time runs AWAY

TIME RUNS OFF

try hard to find it

it jams its foot

in the SKY

and then TRY

to budge it or DIE

it refuses to PLAY

and then remember

in January or DECEMBER

that old sun in

the sky

it carefully will not comply

with your wishes

or EYE

IT MOVES UP

the orb of the SKY

and marks off

each hour on sundial

or TOWER

and you cannot stop it

even if you TRY

SAY it play it

a mystery RHYME

AND in those spaces

in long lost PLACES

EVEN music keeps

the BEAT in TIME

What do you think?

Legend

Written by Johndavisnearby

LET loose the Night
to play its strings in my Heart
the Music of the Ages
has a Beat from the Start
A Tit a Tat
and the Tap of a Shoe
Even the Muses listen to YOU
A Lute a Flute
Cello and violin Too
O Night of the Soft Winds
the children of Earth
Listen to YOU
