“Now is the Time : 170 Ways to Seize the Moment”
By Patrick Lindsay
Now is the time …: to read a classic.
“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly
exhausted. You should lead several lives while reading it.
~ William Styron (1905-2006)
Great Books, Second Looks
I’ve read at least ten out of thirty on the list…
Some more modern than others that one might
Be surprised to find, just because a classic by someone’s definition
That I read somewhere should be at least over fifty years old…
Becoming them, each
And every character ~ to
Breath their fire in dreams
To be refreshed in waking
In the waterfall of dawns
Believing that we
can find some truth between the
Flipping of pages
I have heard of, seen or have some knowledge of several
Of the other titles on a list that bespeaks of thirty literary classics.
Some I have no desire to read, and others I think I would
Enjoy if I read them once again.

(With quotes by famous folks
Whose last names start with the alphabet
Or at least have those ‘tricky letters’ –
U, Q, X & Y in them)
