Time Is Poem by Henry Van Dyke

Time Is

Rating: 3.2

Time is
Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who Fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice;
But for those who Love,
Time is not.

Yes, Time is different for those who see it for their own purpose.

Short and sweet. The kind of poem that I like, and such truth expressed here in Van Dyke's words. Thank you, Poem Hunter, for choosing this one today. I like it very much.
