Ode To A Frozen Timepiece

Rating: 4.5

I.
Funny now, the painted scenes of love abound
That stricken tick, persistent, pleasing measure
Done its final dance around, and now its final sound
To hills of shadows passing, glinting skies to eyes azure

There is no harsher justice, as the mountain snows recede
Possessed are we of sweet decrees, those locks of album hair

Cold and unforgiving Mistress, marking moments - do proceed

Kelly-Outstanding work-of all the many lines that I love, fitting together like the movements of an old clock, I think I best love....Possessed are we of sweet decrees, the locks of album hair....love the little details that mark the passing time and memories kept alive. I also think the Roman numerals at the head of each stanza is a nice clock face touch. Phillip
