Reflection on time inspired by girl playing with water slide

What is time? I was outside walking, and saw a little girl playing with little water slide. I said, “you are having a lot of fun eh” and she said, “YEAHHH, I have been playing for THREE hours”. I said, “THREE HOURS”!  The surprise in my voice might have alarmed her and she said, “oh it could be an hour”!! I said, “what is more important is that you are having fun” and she screamed, “Yeah” getting ready to dive down head first, with a toohless grin!!

Time is but a trifle when you are tiny & toothless
Nothing to chase, to acquire, when you have much less

But later……..
Home’s hardly enough, when you aspire for a palace
Then a yacht. There isn’t time for it all,. Oh… the stress
