Time Peace! - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

The clock on the wall
Keeps on ticking away.
It seems to be saying
“Today’s not the day! ”

But how can it know
When Peace cometh for me,
Even though I can’t hear,
And my eye’s just don’t see?

I watched it all day.
The hands kept moving around.
It seems to be advising
I’ll be soon homeward bound!

We knew from the start
That it never could be,
In a moment of anger
Time moved against me!

That’s all behind now,
Time is where it belongs.
As for me and clock watching,
I now sing a new song!

I’ll never be lonely
As I thought I would be.
For that clock on the wall
Brought me Peace, now I’m Free!
