"Dream as though you'll live forever, live as though you'll die today."
~James Dean (1931-1955), American Motion Picture Actor, symbol of rebellion

Bright, vivid, rolling green grass

Stretched across miles and miles of fields.

Glittered with sparkling droplets of dew

Capturing the morning sunlight like a camera capturing a memory.

Old, wooden, picket fences

They once kept the cows in the pasture;

Now they are useless

Prickling the countryside like paint dripping off a painting.

Dull, stone, towering ancient castles

The royalty is long gone

Yet the presence of a king remains

Like an archaic artifact uncovered from the dirt
