The Clock Has Stops Ticking.

Wait! What is that sound?
The sound of time ceasing, 
the sound of alarms unheard, 
cocks silent on the gate, 
the unthinkable has come to pass, 
the clock has stopped ticking at last.

Wait! What is that I see?
Nothing but darkness, 
the turn and return, 
pendulum held in stillness, 
days and nights all past, 
the clock has stopped ticking at last.

Wait! What’s that I feel?
Nothing but earth on senseless skin, 
now time ends, eternity will begin, 
day turns no more and night comes on fast, 
the clock has stopped ticking at last.
