And the winner is...
Change - beast
A lovely entry, and an elegant presentation of time moving much more quickly than the author would prefer. Good use of rhyme and the rhythm of the poem remains constant throughout. All in all, a very enjoyable read.
Congratulations beast, as winner your poem will be stickied, linked to the homepage, and you are invited to be a guest judge for October's POTM.
Honorable mention to HolderOfTheDarkChalice, a close second.
