"Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past."

Here's an enactment of time in lived experience.

> About This Poem
>  
> "I have lately been thinking a lot about time and I am often thinking about love and this poem appeared before I fell asleep a few weeks ago. I have long admired Catullus's use of the word 'kisses' and I was happy to find a place for it here."
