Slipped By

the morning was dark and damp

the clouds hung in the sky


the only light was those of lamps



while the hours slowly slipped by







the afternoon was bright and hot


every pond was dry

i sat near the forget-me-nots
while the hours slowly slipped by

the evening was cool just right

the earth seemed to sigh


i lay down to watch the night



while the hours slowly slipped by

I like how you clearly portrayed the sense of time slowing slipping by. Good description of nature around you to contribute to the idea of time continuing on. Your rhymes make the poem flow!
