"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]


Drip. Drop.

The Sun is the Clock.

Snowflake Fallen. Snowflake Gone.

Drip. Drop.

The Time is Soon.

The Time is Running Out, The Time is Speeding Out.

Drip. Drop.

Flee to the north.

Blow away, Run away.

Drip. Drop.

The Time is Out.

The Frost is Gone, The Snowflake Melt.

Drip. Drop.

Drip. Drop.

Was this an inspiration behind Raindrops in the Snow?
Also, I wonder how it would sound sung. I have written poems classified under song lyrics (mainly because I named them after a jazz track), but I don't play or sing mine. I tried recording my voice once and ugh it was awful.
