Of Old and Newer Nows

Tis not so much the What as the How
Tis not so much the Then as the Now
For Then is defined by young and old
In How we use the Now we hold

The Now we hold is soon exchanged
For newer Nows; this Now estranged
From us forever save in fields
That bloom with what the old Now yields
