Measure Time


Time measured in ten ways,
Measure one, is in full days
Measure two, a moment’s gaze
Measure three, a passing phase,
Measure four, a sleepy haze,
Measure five, how long they stay,
Measure six, attention pays,
Measure seven, heaven says,
Measure eight, how long sun rays,
Measure nine, the time he prays,
Measure ten, love a heart portrays.
Can you think of other ways?

They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
