Time Poem Theme

The life is passing according to a pre-defined timetable. Everythings happen at a specific time. Nature has automated the universe in a way that nothing goes out of control. There is a time to born and also a time to die. The time for happiness and sorrows is fixed. There is a time to sow and a time to reap.

The time keeps changing and the things and happenings also change and reverse. We all are bound to float on a ship of the time.

Time Poem Summary

In this poem, the poet has expressed and justified the occurring of everything at a specific time. The poet says that everything happens at its time. Nature has set up a circle of time as we see that the clock is round and the time passes in a circular movement.
Timing is everything. If it meant to happen, it will, at the right time, for the right season.
Similarly, things also happen in a cycle. The winter is followed by spring. The summer is followed by autumn. This cycle continues forever and the system of the universe keeps running. We see that there is a time to born and a time to die. We have time to laugh and a time to cry. A time to speak and a time to remain silent is also fixed.
Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough - George Bernard Shaw
There is a time to plant and reap. The time to build and break down is fixed. There is also a fixed time to lose something and a time to get it back.

The poet, in fact, has tried to make us realize that we cannot change the course of Nature. We cannot get anything before time - nor we should worry about losing something if the time of loss is not yer arrived.
