The poem describes an hour between the narrator and her lover.

The poem is about how precious time is for lovers, however little time is spent together.

"Love's time's beggar"- Love is dependent on time, but time doesn't need love.

"For Thousands of seconds"-Makes time slow down or makes it seem longer by counting it in the smallest division.

"the Midas light turning your limbs to gold"- the sunset makes everything seem golden or that love makes everything look


Bethany Cunningham
