NaPoWriMo 2020 – Day 29 – “Life Cannot Stand Still” by David Ellis – A Found Poem Inspired by “To His Coy Mistress” by Andrew Marvell

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
