Pasted below is a perfect gem of a poem by Raymond Carver, to which I think many ShelfTalker readers will be able to relate. This one originally appeared in All of Us: The Collected Poems.
Woke up this morning with
a terrific urge to lie in bed all day
and read. Fought against it for a minute.
Then looked out the window at the rain.
And gave over. Put myself entirely
in the keep of this rainy morning.
Would I live my life over again?
Make the same unforgiveable mistakes?
Yes, given half a chance. Yes.
