|Which way shall I take the course to my reader’s hearts,
What scale and tools do I collect with,
What voyeur’s wrap I claim in readiness.
Are the ages of my father come to bear,
Or will be for next generation’s benefit:
And for sure hope luck to smile a lot,
Unless I weaken in devotion,
That I harbor this pretext,
Where course is subject to a wanton age.
Gather, flock with us; examine all to beyond:
Valiant person have surpassed our time.

|That is a very good reason to write history-- I love how real you make it, and it's obvious the hours you spend researching your time/place/events and even characters, though I realize they're mostly fiction, to be that real, they must be based on actual people. You bring the past alive again, so their ghosts can finally be put to rest. I appreciate that very much about your writing. And your books are on my wish-list for Christmas-- and I've a lot of clout this year, as I've been working extra-extra hard...
But wouldn't it be an interesting journey back in time to rearrange a few minor events so calamaties don't take place? It's mind-boggling how many things we could mess up doing just a bit of that, isn't it... still, I love movies that have that topic-- "Frequency" is one of my favorites. and of course, "Back to the Future". And other events perhaps more real, like The Philedelphia experiment... clouted with mystery and green vapors... Mysteries and possibilities.
But not so, your writing-- breaking the mystery and telling it like it was for many. You're a fine-fine writer. And don't mind WABBA-- that's got to be an acronym for something... "wanna be a better author?" I don't know. --Charlie

|Well stated--my sentiments exactly. A lot of work went into this poem to capture this rhythm and the rhyme pattern. I enjoyed it. If only I had the patience to write poems with the craft that went into this one.|
