ALL TOGETHER ONE

YEAR ON ENDS

WHY I RHYME WITH TIME

Each comes with its own songs And each wants its name among Like a battle where none belongs The songs sing themselves like an odd wrong II Travelling with time, one must mime To hear its sounds so one can rhyme To feel its pulse so one can time And work so right to desist […]
