Unleash your arrow dipped in space and time
And let it fly for twelve long months of time:

First January and returns to school:
A penitent and penitentiary time.

Then February made its short debut
And acts dramatic all-consumed my time.

Then March came militantly to my door
And brought its music metered for the time.

Soon April poured its contents on my floor
As Brutus brooded silence for a time.

Came May and made my number twenty-two
And Martha’s Vineyard home for one week’s time.

Bright June brought sunshine and an internship
Set sail upon a voyage for some time.

July sought refuge on my beach’s shore
And Carolina ventures in its time.

Then August brought the voyage to a close
And school began a fresh cycle of time.

September fetched its labor-heavy load
And all the days grew shorter in their time.

October haunted more with harried tasks
That hurried deadlines, deadening the time.

November, as you like it, came and went,
A cornucopia of thankful time.

December, and semester draws to close–
Expensive month for what we call free time.

Unleash your arrow dipped in space and time
And let it fly for twelve long months of time.

Love the simple things
