Time piece

I wrote the following last year, during the doggerel days of August, inspired by a nifty feature on the revamped home page of our local Audubon chapter.

Ode to a Line of Java Code

Holy smoke – upon the monitor, a flock
Of swirling numerals turned into a clock!
They chase the cursor, newly hatched ruffed grouse
Imprinting – as it were – upon the mouse,
But soon enough resume their circle dance,
Spin left or freeze, like children in a trance
Whose ring-around-a-rosie fell from grace –
Transformed by warp of time and cyberspace.
