Sand Clock

If the days were long and night short

Does the shadow of the person shrink?

Of stress that the mornings bring

And of the evening grime?

What will happen to clock that stopped?

Does that stretch the day’s hours?

Clogging the sand from freely falling

Into the sand clock’s partition

Indicating long way to go,

To rest and sleep.
