Although we count on space and time
To honour all that is sublime
And use oblivion to punish art
That makes no difference to the heart,
The time a writer needs to last —
The synapse-leaping flash — is fast.
And space is tiny; we can find
A universe inside the mind.
It’s with these smallest measures we
Decide the fate of what we see.
The generations come apace
But each must choose its time and space.
