Gordon Nightingale

If we could only place a bookmark
On good pages of our life,
To return to read again and again
In times of trouble and strife.
Enjoy the good times over and over,
Live the juicy bits once more,
Have happy ever afters
With the ones that we adore.
It seems a waste of brain power
Making plans you’ll probably change.
A bookmark on the page of life
May help you rearrange.


Gordon Nightingale is an author and poet. Although no longer a Daylesford local, he continues to make occasional contributions to the Wombat Post.
