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.

Summer 2019 has arrived and that means it’s time to fill up your calendar. Before you start planning a vacation to some secluded island, you might want to consider sticking close by to a movie theater. The reason being that there are 34 summer 2019 movies coming out that are so worth seeing.

 

As per usual, the upcoming releases include a lot of familiar reboots and sequels. But before the complaints start coming in regarding the lack of original ideas, first take a look at what these old familiar titles entail- a lot of much more exciting and new than you would expect. Need an example? Men in Black: International, slated to come out June 14th. The reboot features a whole new team of special agents, which includes Tessa Thomspon as Agent M. We’re so hyped that a woman is finally joining the elite team of alien butt-kickers.

 

There’s much more coming over the next three months from mega monster movies to a horrifying new Child’s Play to even a live-action take on an animated adventure series.
