What is it
When is it
How is it


What was it
When was it
How was it


Where can it be
It worries me
When it's almost up


Tick tick tick
Tock tock tock
Hear the sound of it

Slow it down
Bring it round
On the town


Is it the end
To meet a friend
On the mend


What will it be
When will it be
How will it be


Into it
Around it
Out of it

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
