Some, if not most,

will argue against

its being slow and silent

 

But all will admit

its steadfastness

 

And most don’t know

of its silence and sadness

because they view its passage

from their own perspectives

rather than from time’s inevitable

tendency to keep on – to

move forever forward – unless

the Universal Masters

decree it’s time for time to cease

 

And the granted “orders” of time

show free will as

mandatory choices - and

all mortals must make

those choices - all must

attempt to do what’s right

and shun what’s wrong

 

But time won’t stop,

and its hands on the clock

won’t shake those of humans

in friendly introduction

 

No, and they also won’t

embrace mortals

or congratulate or console them

 

Rather, they’ll simply

transport them to whichever

door of eternity is

appropriate for their entrance

into – depending of course

upon how each of those

individual mortals

lived their lives

in earthly time

I like this poem like the other you wrote.  I like your style of writing.  My favorite lines begin with "But time won't stop ...."  However, I was wondering if you needed the "them" at the end of console or the "into" beginning the line "into - depending of course."  Very nice poem.


Thanks for your input Birgitta. Sorry I didn't respond sooner.  I agree "them" is unnecessary. "Into" I think probably does belong however. Thanks again, RFH
