Marriage made in heaven?
They were wed in Eastern standard time.

Sometimes she ran when he was winding.
Sometimes she wound when he was running.

He ran fifteen minutes faster than she did.

When his spring sprang, she alarmed,
Ran down --

A pity they were not synchronized.

This was cute - it was about two clocks right? Maybe I'm wrong.
Personification is so creative I think.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience


“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”

Thanks, Arc. Yes it's about internal and external clocks--relationships out of sync.
