Will You Not Stay Poem & Theme

TIME, you old gipsy man,
  Will you not stay,
Put up your caravan
  Just for one day?

All things I'll give you
Will you be my guest,
Bells for your jennet
Of silver the best,
Goldsmiths shall beat you
A great golden ring,
Peacocks shall bow to you,  
Little boys sing,
Oh, and sweet girls will
Festoon you with may.
Time, you old gipsy,
Why hasten away?

Last week in Babylon,
Last night in Rome,
Morning, and in the crush 
Under Paul's dome;
Under Paul's dial
You tighten your rein—
Only a moment,
And off once again;
Off to some city
Now blind in the womb,
Off to another
Ere that's in the tomb.
  
Time, you old gipsy man,
  Will you not stay,
Put up your caravan
  Just for one day?

THEME:
Time never waits for anyone. It is always on the forward move. It never stays or takes rest. It always runs and runs. To stop time for a while the poet offers things like bells for its jennet of the best silver, a golden ring, etc. This poet requests time to put up its caravan just for one day, but time seems to be in a hurry as usual.
