Rhythm And Rhyme

The Rhythm and the Rhyme
The Pace of ceaseless time,
Linger this dismal day
As if the pace were mine.

Sublime in every fashion-
This shape surrounding me,
Beaten into a perfect mold
Like the sand beneath the sea.

Time has brought me here,
Time will take me away,
The passing of a moment
Reaps the passing of a day.

Wrinkles cling to my face
Weather beaten and worn,
The Motion I find everywhere
Is gathering in its Form.

It counts out the Rhythm,
It adds to the Rhyme,
It flows ever so gently
As if the pace were mine.
