Where Does the Time Go? (A Poem)

Where does the time go?
Hither and fro.
Over and yonder
and far and away,
time is a child,
and the child loves to play.
September closes
while October waits,
and donโ€™t we all have
plans to make?
So what comes next?
No one can say.
It belongs to us to
only bide the hours
and count the days.

  1. I feel like the last time I blinked, I lost two months. I’m afraid if I blink again it’ll be Christmas. I just don’t know where the time is going at all and it’s actually pretty scary. Your poem gives a different perspective and you’ve written it beautifully well, I love it!

    • I’m so glad you liked the poem! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. I’m looking forward to Halloween and the holidays, and to cooler weather and (maybe!) snow, but time just seems to be moving a little too fast. It was the beginning of summer, like, two days ago!
