    Learn the poem

    Slowly Slowly the tide creeps up the sand,
    Slowly the shadows cross the land.
    Slowly the cart-horse pulls his mile,
    Slowly the old man mounts his stile.
    Slowly the hands move round the clock,
    Slowly the dew dries on the dock.
    Slow is the snail – but slowest of all
    The green moss spreads on the old brick wall.

    by James Reeves
