A pendulum plays a well known rhythm

Written by: Michael Dom

Movements between a left and a right swing
A pendulum plays a well-known rhythm
Moments between the ticking and tocking

A lonely figure bracing in the storm
An empty park-bench on a quiet lawn
A pendulum plays a well-known rhythm

Like a long lost memory towards dawn
The distant baying of a hunting dog
An empty park-bench on a quiet lawn

Hearing bright laughter thru the gloomy fog
Sometimes life is spent in little spaces
The distant baying of a hunting dog

Out at large, on and on the world races
Life, long or short, fines a nominal sum
Sometimes life is spent in little spaces

Knocking at a door for heaven to come
Movements between a left and a right swing
Life, long or short, fines a nominal sum
Moments between the ticking and tocking.
