Time does it’s duty,

Clocks do their thing-

Sundials work crudely.

Dawn pierces brutally,

Sun rays pale wing-

Time does it’s duty.

Clouds expand mutely,

Mockingbirds sing-

Sundials work crudely.

Sharp wind screams rudely,

Icy air stings-

Time does its duty.

Fish flirt lewdly,

Make huddle ring-

Sundials work crudely.

Winter has cruelty,

Crackling shards bring-

Time does its duty

Sundials work crudely.

(Mediocre attempt at villanelle. Definitely need to work on this form! It’s a challenge)
