January has been a rough start to 2019 for many folks, which includes my household. Colds and a bit of the flu have slapped us all. Despite household deep-cleaning efforts, I’m climbing from my second bout with the crud. As a result, I must apologize for missing my weekly blog post on Sunday. The error prompted me to write a quick verse today (Monday) that refers to time.

Enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.



For all of the years that I’ve been alive

Clichéd idioms regarding time still thrive

Such as “a stitch in time saves nine”

I guess, for a seamstress, that saying’s just fine

Then there’s the quip “that ship has sailed”

A sure indication that someone has failed

Or maybe this darling “in the nick of time”

To avoid the need to “make up for lost time”

Of course there’s more like “third time’s the charm”

Hoping the other two times didn’t cause any harm

And there’s “time flies when you’re having fun”

Which folks hope won’t change things “in the long run”

But the idiom that fits any worthwhile endeavor

Applies to this week’s blog “better late than never”

One thought on “Time

  1. Hope you are better. I had crud for 3 weeks ! Had 10” plus snow today. Nice to be retired! Time seems to go faster now!
