Pondering

Heavy and fraught with

The final seconds of

The final minutes of

The final hours of

The final day of

The first seconds of

The first minutes of

The first hour of

The first day

 

Still ponderous and

Pondering and

Full of meaning or

Never brought to mind

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and

Days of auld lang syne
