Poem Poem and Stories


The old and ancient
Old as existence
You are many things to many people
To many you are a fine piece of jewelry
A symbolic artifact
A beautiful ornament
An automatic regulator
Some call you  a historical reference
A lasting tribute
A powerful legacy
A famous monument
To others you are our very existence
The true reality we face
The ticking numbers we count
The life we live
Time oh time
What we make of you
Becomes our reality
Becomes what you are to us
We hear of you
We pass through you
We live in you
We wave at you
