Epizeugma

Epizeugma (ep-i-zoog’-ma): Placing the verb that holds together the entire sentence (made up of multiple parts that depend upon that verb) either at the very beginning or the very ending of that sentence.

There is nothing like time’s rush.

Being free, patience waits.

Waiting, without rushing to wait, time passes.
