The ClockWorks
 
Just not anymore, but only one
Dazzling with life, alone
Broken, unfinished and mistreated
But this one...
This one had a spark
A wonderful aura
 
You would’ve waited and waited in front of the clock
 Tick Tock
But nothing would’ve happened
Waiting even longer
Tock Tick
Time went shy
And then serenely, a swallow would’ve erupted from its centre
Its head was eagerly white
A fallen swallow, it was
Fallen and misguided
 
An old man, old indeed
Ancient and wise
With his globe on his eye
Stepping carefully with his cane
With a small blue, bent wing
Attaching it to the swallow
The swallow was no more than wood
But it had more life than anything.
 The clock was no more than nails and pieces of clockwork
But yet, in my eyes it became alive.
