There’s new art in the park
Down at 5th Street and State.
When you’re there you can tell
If you’re early or late.
It’s a sculpture, a clock,
A structure, a tower
That goes quirky kinetic
When striking the hour.
Funded by philanthropists
Carol and Tim.
He’s just crazy for clocks
(As you’d know, if you know him)!
A tribute to our friends far away
Whom you likely may never know.
When it shows one o’clock here, it’s already two
In Miguel de Allende, in old Mexico.
It tells us In Linli (in China) it’s three;
And shows four o’clock in Hino, Japan.
And now it’s time you should guess or ascertain
The sculpture’s official name (if you can).
Try some cool mapping at this website, created for the library by Esri:
Have fun with it…where will be your first destination to look up? Locally; in the state; country? How about someplace in the world?!
