Clocks with Time

by Zara Perkins

An object to tell the time
An object not to be manipulated
but to live by
The time never tells lies
Time never stops
Time never fades
Time is the essence of everything
A schedule
A precious moment
Time is a giver
Time is a receiver
Time is celebrated at the start of a new year
Time is old time is grand
Time never fails
But yet is never understands
Time goes fast
Time goes slow
From minutes to hours
Time is what we all know
