what time is it?

 
 
 
 
.
 
 
 
what time is it?it is by every star
a different time,and each most falsely true;
or so subhuman superminds declare

– nor all their times encompass me and you:

when are we never,but forever now
(hosts of eternity;not guests of seem)
believe me,dear,clocks have enough to do

without confusing timelessness and time.

Time cannot children,poets,lovers tell -
measure imagine,mystery,a kiss
– not through mankind would rather know than feel;

mistrusting utterly that timelessness

whose absence would make your whole life and my
(and infinite our)merely to undie


–E. E. Cummings
