On Taking Your Time

by Piet Hein

Time arrives all the time
and the only true crime
is the way we defile it
with worry

For inadequate time
is that species of time
you'll encounter whenever
you hurry

Piet Hein is a Danish mathematician, physicist, writer, designer, and pithy, wry, funny poet. Several of his collections, called Grooks, have recenty been reprinted.
