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.

The ultimate man of mystery is without a doubt, the one and only: Austin Powers.  When the first of his movie series came out in 1997 (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery) it felt like the world had completely been changed (for the better, of course).

 

This incredibly hilarious, and ridiculous comedy entered the world, and it was all anyone could talk about.  It became popular to make references to the movie, and especially holding up our pinkies next to the side of our mouths while saying ”one million dollars”. It was truly legendary.

 

Although we’ve been so blessed to already have had three movies in the series, we are still not yet ready to give up on our groovy dude Austin.  An entire sixteen years have gone by since Goldmember was released, and now we are all ready for a fourth movie.

 

Thankfully Mike Meyers, who both wrote and starred in the movies, has shared some secrets that have got us thinking that good things are about to happen.  He has recently revealed, with a naughty smile on his face, that Dr. Evil will be back ”soon”.  Meyers has also shared that ”it’s looking good”. It seems as though there’s a lot more going on than he discuss, but he’s got us all feeling ready and hopeful.
