Clockwork Time - Poem by Robert James Robinson

Tick tock
Tick tock,
The grandfather clock
Tries not to stop.

Time passes
All day long,
As the pendulum
Falls then crawls.

Gears inside
Turn and turn,
Passing life
As it shines.

When it stops
Please don’t cry,
Someone will
Rewind the time.

Tick tock
Tick tock

Years go by
As it lies,
The rust builds up
Then time will die.
