Daily Prompt: I Did it My Way

Today’s Daily Prompt:

Describe the one decision in your life where you wish you could get a “do-over.” Tell us about the decision, and why you’d choose to take a different path this time around.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us ITERATION.

 

So today I thought I would have a bit of fun with the daily prompt. Instead of reading about things I might have done in the past that I wish I could do over. (Which are very few for me) I’d give you some fun things to read, that fits the criteria of ITERATION. The definition of iteration is:  1. The act of repeating; a repetition.

So based from that definition I thought it might be fun to read some literature or poems that fit the definition of iteration, as in a repetition. I know, I’m loosely following the idea of the prompt, but hey, I can do it if I want. I’m such a rebel! They did say do it our way.

Because I do not hope to turn again

Because I do not hope

Because I do not hope to turn

Desiring this man’s gift and that man’s scope

I no longer strive to strive towards such things

(Why should the agèd eagle stretch its wings?)

Why should I mourn

The vanished power of the usual reign?

T.S. Eliot

 

And then there is good old Mother Goose……

A SEASONABLE SONG

Piping hot, smoking hot.
What I’ve got
You have not.
Hot gray pease, hot, hot, hot;
Hot gray pease, hot.

TO MARKET

To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety jog.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.

 

And then of course there is Dr Seuss……..

Waiting for the fish to bite
Or waiting for wind to fly a kite.
Or waiting around for Friday night
Or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake
Or a pot to boil or a better break
Or a string of pearls or a pair of pants
Or a wig with curls or another chance.
Everyone is just waiting.
~Dr. Seuss
