Hurry Up

“But meanwhile it is flying,
irretrievable time is flying.”

– fr. Georgics, Virgil (70 – 19 BC),
Roman poet

 

HURRY UP

gather plums while it is day
light shall not forever last
sense the softness in the hay
hurry up, Time flies so fast.

pick your roses when in blush
before they droop, dry alas
sniff cool scent of petals flush
hurry up, Time flies so fast.

run the distance while you can
linger not ‘til shadows cast
fleeting Time waits for no man
hurry up, Time flies so fast.

ah, make the most out of life
we live, then return to dust
so make haste to end all strife
hurry up, Time flies so fast!

(between
you and your goal
is time.

between
your goal and you
is deed.)

– between
time and deed
is you.
