Life is Now
Watching the reflection on the lake
Gazing at he water as I sing
No better day could I make
Taking time to smell the rose
As the bees buzz around
Lazing in the sun as I doze
What wonders I have found
Making time to enjoy life
Dreaming of days gone by
Where life was without strife
But no one knew why
Now is the time to enjoy today
Before our life is taken away
Sonnet 73- Shakespeare
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruin'd choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou seest the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west,
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death's second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou seest the glowing of such fire
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the death-bed whereon it must expire
Consumed with that which it was nourish'd by.
This thou perceivest which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long.
Thinking about what I could be doing
The homework is boring and I would like to pass
All the homework is confusing
I like the teacher just not the subject
I would rather go to sleep than sit here
The class is the opposite of perfect
I wish the class would disappear
I don't want to sound rude but history is boring
But sometimes it gets interesting
It makes me sometimes want to go exploring
When it gets interesting I start listening.
I wonder what the places are like
Maybe the places are dreamlike.
