Do we know how many centuries this world has been here?
Not precisely, although science has come very near.
They keep trying to establish the length of time,
The earth has been spinning its systematic rhyme. Some countries have records thousands of years old.

Slow down world, we need time out! Time to enjoy those daily things around us.
All the children have come and gone.
Vacation is over and they have gone home.
The house is so still, I can hear a pin drop.
As I listen to the ticking of the Grandfather clock. There are no sounds of children at play,
