Appeasement of Chronos god

Head listening to a ticking clock

It seems they say that time ran out

But watched it not, nor hung about

Ticking slow for those who wait

Too swift for those at death’s gate

Too long for the heart that grieves

Too short when enjoyment leaves

For those who love, time is not

For rapt attention mind has got

In present moment future will

Not be present but stand still

Hands of time stretch out to me

As Lord’s unused opportunity


O Lord, when you are constant present time, why should I be anxious? Grant that I may be aware of your outstretched gift of unused seconds that I may fill them with blessings and noble values, praise and love.
