Comment on this Work


In 15 seconds: you can fall in love
Or gulp down a hot cup of tea and burn
Your mouth in the process; or write a poem
In 15 minutes: make a salad or consult a doctor
Or even have a tooth removed; or slowly run a mile
In 15 hours: plan and throw a party; or edit a newspaper
Or start and finish reading a big, fat, satisfying book in bed
In 15 days: learn to swim, with two-hour classes on a daily basis
Or explore a country, discover things and learn a bit of the language
In 15 months: watch a little baby slowly grow, learn to walk well alone
In 15 years: finally realise that some things will take much longer to forget
