The Clock

Art by Anonymous, Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)

When in doubt or some inner lock
Look no further than a flying bird
The swings it does with each flock
That coalesce clouds with wind
And compare it to a cuckoo clock
That syncs with heart in tick tock
As mind’s voice is no longer blurred
For time is mightier than a block
Even when a bird is in a cosy cage
Still could peek out with its head
Though a clock which makes it all strange
But it puts senses back to parade
As the home it takes is the stage
Each time eyes opened to the calls it made
