Clock chimes!

Updated on July 8, 2014
  • The fingers of a clock

tick and un-tick

the moments of mankind!



  • The arms of the clock

magnanimously

give

infinite time

as alms

to mankind!



  • The arms in the clock

define

the indefinite time

of the universe!



  • In vain

do the arms

of the doting Beau Clock

circumambulate

the evasive Dame Time!



  • The tiny steps

of the short Hour

catches up

with the long strides

of the tall Minute!
