Time and tide wait for no one.

Standard

I wish I could go back in time,

read Gulliver’s Travel and The Last Leaf,

write letters and notices,

maybe even a few poetry with rhyme.

 

So often I wonder,

only if I had taken more time,

to understand grammar and punctuation,

check my spellings twice.

 

What if Shakespeare read my poetry,

I would have to disappear for a lifetime,

but before I do that,

at least peruse his work so fine.

 

I wish I could go back in time,

remember the words of Caesar,

fall in love with Frost,

not miss out precious years left behind.
