Tempus Fugit


The latin proverb "Tempus Fugit" says very well; "Time flies". So be aware of it please! Don't let people to steal your time or the other way... This painting is perfect to remind us the precious tic tocs of time. 
A poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti ; Tempus Fugit

Lovely Spring,
A brief sweet thing,

Is swift on the wing;

Gracious Summer,

A slow sweet comer,
Hastens past;
Autumn while sweet
Is all incomplete
With a moaning blast,--
Nothing can last,
Can be cleaved unto,
Can be dwelt upon;
It is hurried through,
It is come and gone,
Undone it cannot be done,
It is ever to do,
Ever old, ever new,
Ever waxing old
And lapsing to Winter cold.
