The Time Is Like a Windmill


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


The time is like a windmill

Of wheeling on the waves

That goes up and down a hill

In moments of lots to fill

With wonderments and craves


The morning is shining there

Onward to fields and roads

And giving a circle to adhere

From some to almost anywhere

Of many its falling loads


Its silences and tones so soft

Filling the moments to go

And bringing around its oft

With a round and around waft

Like wind in breeze will blow


The day and night to give in

Of each its work be done

From dry to water full spin

Where each of both has been

Until the turning is none


Wheel will strive and break

To reach its own destiny

Give of what it will take

And always be still awake

To turn forever and be free


For it's like circle of life

In making its going turn

And as it too it must strife

And break on through the rife

Forever to go on and learn
