Hey there everyone.
I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.
Today I have selected an interesting romantic poem as my inspiration written by poet Andrew Marvell. You can read the lyrics to his poem below.

“Life Cannot Stand Still” by David Ellis Had we enough time We would sit down and think By the tide Before the flood Love should grow, slow Praise and adore every part Show your heart You deserve this, always Eternity shall be found Marble, echoing long Your lust, sits on willing soul With fires, now amorous Devour all our sweetness and pleasures Life cannot stand still Yet, we will run
