Kilkenny’s Standing stones, Time – a Poem by : Anthony Zeigler

County Kilkenny has many Standing stones, often located on farm land and hidden from public eyes.

They are a reminder of times past, long ago, so long few know their original purpose or anything about the people who first erected them.

It is thought that they were used to mark the passing of time , the Hours, days and months of the year.

Time

By : Anthony Zeigler

Time is where we are
And time is where we’ve been
Time is being lost
And found again

Time is the day we were born
the day we die
Time is the hours that pass
As they come just then fly

Time is what we know
what we learn
Time is what it is
Some times it will hunt and some times it will burn

Time is all we have
Though it seems so little
Time is all around us
We are caught in the middle

Time is when we’re there
what we’ve missed
Time is our biggest fear
But we try to make the best of it

  1. They litter the countryside. Yet once upon a time someone put them there. I am always fascinated by them.
