Keeper


It is the keeper of creations
Observing signs that show
Adjustment may be necessary
To stop each running slow
When at the appointed time
It inserts the appropriate key
That tensions up each spring
Keeps each running true and free

And each creation is filed
In its own time and space
Bounded by those rules
That hold it in its place
It observes each creation
From that first birth pang
Each agony of bursting energy
Of each inceptive big bang

It records each dispassionately
Maintains and serves them all
Records each birth and death
Each rise and each long fall
And it tidies up the pieces
Ready for that instant when
The forces are released that
 Bring a creation once again

For nothing is wasted
No matter is abused
Each valued and weighed
For its ultimate re use
It is the keeper of creations
Observing signs that show
Adjustment may be necessary
To stop each running slow
