Always looking for the elusive minute,
Today I’ve been granted all of sixty of it!
Quick quick – What do I do! What do I do?
Elatedly rushing come thoughts , so so and so!
Shopping spree – Me n my money readily parted?
Start a book that I always wanted?
Or cook a dish always coveted?
A walk by the sea, wind tugging my hair
White surf curling around my toes bare?
A page new in my blog
A topic I longed to log?
A gossip session on the phone?
Or my musical hour, all alone?
I dance around with greedy Glee
My smile as happy as can ever be,
The grandfather clock strikes one
Alas! The special hour is done!
Time – the most valuable,
Time – the most perishable!
Written In response to : Good news — another hour has just been added to every 24-hour day (don’t ask us how. We have powers). How do you use those extra sixty minutes?
