An amazing poem written with absolute care in the choice and placement of words. Notice that there are 37 words before "Noon" and exactly as many afterwards.What a genius!

This poem is very relevant to me as my father was involved in clock making and repair. As a metaphor the use of the puppet and the clock as symbols of life and death are marvellous. I have this poem printed out and stuck on the wall and have spent some time looking at the beauty of its formation.
