Passing Time is an accumulation of rimes and stories Lillian Kincheloe has written, starting on the homestead in New Mexico in the '30s. They go on to a time when she wrote stores to entertain her grandchildren. Rimes like "The Tour of Jerusalem" came into being because of her faith in God and reading and studying the bible. Various experiences that she has seen during her long life account for all the other poems and short stories. Her wry sense of humor is reflected throughout her writing.
