It slipped through fingers as water from a stream
As do the song of robins die just merrily
(And hushed snow falling upon an aging tree)
While evening sunlight brushes against our cheek

It laughed with children as echoes usually do
As well as mirrors reflect just little truth
(And glass which shatters only to be cleaned)
While sweeping mothers move to their own beat

It sang another lullabye as quiet as could be
As do the diamond stars whisper with soft light
(And grandfather clocks chime a closing hour)
While time continues passing downy as a feather

    I'm noticing a trend. Whilst all of your work, including this poem, feels considered and is obviously well worded the pattern of the poem template has been the same so often.

    I think you need to experiment with poem structure so I'm challenging you to write a sonnet, a lanturne and the big one, an iambic pentameter.
