On Meeting Late


They met too late and they both knew
that meeting late would never do.
For time was against them in every way.
The clock was ticking their time away.
“Oh, “said she, “this should never be.
There’s not enough time to be with thee.”
He listened quietly and knew she was right.
They had their chance earlier to unite,
but were afraid to say what they did feel.
They became victims of what time does steal.

    Like they say, 'There's no time like the present' - which is very true. I like the poem Edwina, it has a nice flow to it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
