Curious Measure

Curious Measure

A Poem by LadyRosaline

Is not the time a curious measure? 
How ‘round-the-clock our watches we impinge.
And glimpse the ticking tocks of a track’d turn-pin.
`Its cyclic circumcisions sickly draw
To circumspection the specters of precious whiles;
Whilst we within ourselves swear our senses?
Vital organs granting pulse with paces 
Are but clockworks: springs and cogs and 
Gears coil, chew, wheel; govern and will 
Tell our work and clockwork share not difference…
Anon, a monumental moment past
By us did sail as vital breath beneath
Our noses doth subsist and from withal hence.
It airs and flies into the wind and blows,
Away it goes, atom among atoms
Innumerable, sight unseen, and gone;
But being short in breadth, it fled 
Null our gratitude, which nigh and opposite
Had thus been lured toward a heeling heir
That likewise graciousness to lag had lost--
But knew you not, moment, for stayed you not, 
Moment, before off and onward you sailed.
Is not the time a curious measure?

Thanks for the request,Sarah!
There is so much here, I don't even know where to begin because of the old english language, I would have to use old english in my interpretation to be precise.

But your writing style brings it all together very nicely. Will definitely read it again.

Very classical in feel and form...and interesting one at that. Also, the concept is interesting, and one that I do agree with; are all too stuck on timing, time, appointments, etc. Definitely not the same as life used to be. Thought provoking piece.

thank you so very much!
Interesting piece posing interesting questions. The wording is interesting too with things like Anon for example. The ending three lines are exquisite. A great deal of "food for thought". Thanks!

This was beautifully written and posed an untiring question. Life is filled with brief moments, minutes we wish we could take back or bring back to say just the right thing now that we have had an additional moment to ponder what we actually said or did. To capture these lost moments and keep them somewhere safe is a dream, though not one that can not come true. This was very nice, happy to have read you.
