Happy New Year 2017

by Frank Hubeny

Poetry challenge: new  year poem.


A clock is very useful.
It marks away the past
With little jumps that we can count.
We know how long stuff lasts.

It tells us when this new year comes
And when the old must go.
It helps us to remember when,
Not why we acted so.

It cannot tell us how we felt
Whatever we might feel.
Because of that what it marks out
Is not completely real.
