Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

One must always paint their nails while trying to maintain a trendy appearance since painted nails give your hands a classy look, elevate your appearance, communicate a sense of style, and showcase your aesthetic sense and femininity. In fact, some people unquestionably enjoy having their nails painted since it improves your appearance overall, draws attention, promotes nail growth and strength, and, most importantly, it is an affordable form of classy fine art. Therefore, let’s look at some elegant nail paint ideas.0

Firstly, consider getting strawberry nail paint since it is a fashionable and elegant style. You need to paint your nails with red nail polish to get it. Once it’s dry, get a toothpick. Toothpicks are great for nail art since they can make tiny dots on your nails. Dip the toothpick into the yellow polish, and then add some dots of yellow paint on your nails to paint seeds. Then, dip the toothpick again into bright green polish and then create three little triangles coming down from your cuticle, and you are done getting your strawberry nail paint. This nail paint style is super good, fashionable, and perfect for all your events.

Secondly, get a cute, dotted flower design. For this, paint your nails with a sky-blue polish or any light color you would like to be on your nails. Once it’s dry, get a bobby pin since this is an easy tool to create dots on your nails if you don’t have a dotting pin. Put the booby pin two ends apart, and it’s ready to use. To make daisies for flowers, dip the bobby tool into the white polish to make three or four petals or small flowers on your sky-blue polish. Then get a shimmery metallic gold paint to fill the central dot of the flower on your nails, and your beautiful, dotted flower nail paint is done. Moreover, consider getting a glitter gradient design, diagonal design, X-pattern, and upside-down French tip, since all these designs look so elegant and elevate your overall appearance.
