This little rock.

Stand on a column
in the gardens
Mounted on a circular base
Cast in metal
you can tell the time
on your
shadowy phase

The revelation
of your light
Is sometimes dappled with grace
Your spirit
still-a-dancing
in this
spherical place

I know you
still TICK TOCK
'Cos the FULL MOON show
makes your
prettiness glow

I know you
still TICK TOCK
when the SUN is on the
other side
of the block

When the gardens are empty
on this little rock

SUNDIAL
