An honesty of The becomes a need
If seek we explanation of what Time;
Since recognizing limit as of rhyme
Analogy presents its faithless creed.
Believe we Time to cede and too to speed
Ahead of Now without so much as seam
Nor joint nor edge but flowing like a stream
Or maybe as the tree emerge from seed.
The problem is too great for fourteen lines
To tell be such but difficulty grand
Since language namely English fail to give
The symbols for strange-things the special signs
That might allow allusion to such band
Connect between that die and that life live.

Indeed David, fourteen lines' capacity for such concept is far too less. Having said that, your masterful wording easily overcomes this hurdle, and my guess is that 'the relationship between language and how to catch the allusion from it', is the missing key. My hypothesis is: 'Is it possible to find the ultimate explanation if we combined all the languages known to man kind to form a master language'?!  Thanks for the great lesson, and ironically, today we are celebrating Stephen Hawking's 70th birthday here in the UK. Isn't this a wonderful coincidence! ~Dean

Indeed the concept of time and life after death is a lot for fourteen lines -- even for a master such as yourself. Having said that you do leave a lot to discuss and ponder in this masterful and beautiful piece of English -- first class.
