Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Precious Time

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you for submitting this very interesting and lyrical poem.  You have chosen to write in an "old English" style that is both appealing and challenging, for the reader.  I will admit to having some trouble, at times, understanding exactly what you were trying to say but, your rhythms work very well and there is something truly inviting about your work.  I very much appreciate you sharing your poem with me.  Your friend in poetry, Susan</p>

Precious Time

<p style="text-align: center;"> </p>
<p style="text-align: center;">The past for the future, tis’ present of ours,</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Time, tis’ strong fleeting- for us to count;</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Few minutes, which art left to reach the end;</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">O don’t fail mine words, tis’ not end to life;</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Ah! Am welcome to expound, the vastness of being.</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">But if ye art finding, everlasting true presence,</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">The frame shall forbid ye wish to last;</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Oh! A way-out is there, to work out in present,</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Tis’ ye deeds to perform, with fineness in the passing space;</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">With determination to dream the daylight of destiny,</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Falling on ye; sprinkling success to paint,</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Desires, with blissful mind & peaceful soul.</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">Holy Bible, tis’ suggesting, “Never waste precious time”,</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">For failure seems weary, when dreaming- A crime.</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">                       -R.G.</p>
