Time Has No Divisions

by Thomas Mann

Time has no divisions to mark its passage;
there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets
to announce the beginning of a new month or year.  

Even when a new century begins,
it is only we mortals
who ring bells and fire off pistols.

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
