Time

The Time

 

 

He waited for the time — and, yes, it came.
That is the way of calendars and clocks.
Oh, temporality was not a game!
He waited for the time, and, yes, it came–
according to the rules and not his aim.
His little feet were sweating in their socks.
He waited for the time — and, yes, it came.
That is the way of calendars and clocks.
