Ode to the Clockwork

Mon, 06/23/2014 - 23:30 -- Zay777


The ticking, ticking of the clock
Repetitious, never stopped
Ticking, tocking all the day
All while the pendulum swings and sways
Oh so rhythmic and defined
Oh so soothing all the time
Those moving hands around the way
Along the face they circle away
Hypnotizing all the day
But it is the chime that's truly divine
Oh the chill it gives when it plays
Although time passes as it chimes
Time feels frozen as it sounds away
Such a simple device it seems
But still so special and so serine
The peace of the clockwork
