As the title of the poem “Times” suggests the poet shares a message that the things should be done at right time. He argues for this idea by giving many examples. There is a set schedule for seasons. They come on time and end On time. There is a Set schedule for sowing seeds, ploughing and watering the plants, and for reaping the harvest. Human life has also a schedule. Allah decides for each person when to give life and when to cause death. In human relations certain actions look good only at proper times.
To everything there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under the heaven;
A time to be born,
And a time to die,
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck up that which is planted.
These lines have been taken from the poem “Times”.
