When as a child I laughed and wept, time crept.
When as a youth I waxed more bold, time strolled. When I became a full-grown man, time RAN. When older still I daily grew, time FLEW. Soon I shall find, in passing on, time gone. O Christ! wilt Thou have saved me then? Amen.

You strolled down the street and sallied into the theater at any hour of the day or night.
