They Thought It Time

They thought it time
to build a cathedral
with gothic towers
into the clouds.
It seemed time
but as it rose
the dry ground crumbled
and cracked around it
leaving only a few
distorted stones
It had seemed like time
but it was too late,
much too late
the cracks were already open
the foundations had fractured
and there was no one to watch
as it floated away
with the clouds.
