If Time should come

If Time should come

A Poem by Laura Sadler

This is a nonsense poem I wrote in the style of one of my favourite authors Lewis Carroll.

'The time has come'
The Walrus said
But will it come again?
And if it does,
As so it should,
The question must be when?
And if Time comes
And we're with Time
What happens after then?
Time cannot leave,
For if it does,
Who knows if two or ten?
We go along
Along goes Time
But we never hold hands
Time is our friend,
We lose it though,
Somewhere among the sands.
Time is lost and
Time is found
But when Time's at an end
We realise now,
With Time in hand,
The question wasn't when.
For Time is here
And Time is there
It never fell behind
For when is
Always now whether
Fast forward or rewind.

Absolutely lovely! If Time is a river, you're going with the flow!

Bravo, the meter and flow is spot on making it very easy to read, the subject matter is witty and has philosophical depth, masterfully written, I look forward to reading more of your work.

This was an interesting piece.
I was trying to make sense of it, figure out its meaning, but you have lost me hhaha.
You have my brain ticking :P
Even though I didn't fully understand the meaning, it seems like you put allot of thought into the piece.
Is it weird that I didn't fully understand it, but still enjoyed the read?
Anyway great write, hopefully your next poems not as confusing though.
