Written Long Ago

Old Books
The book was written long ago,
Its story is happening today.
The set is carefully arranged.
The players speak their lines.
The first act is coming to a close.
Then surprising events happen on the stage.
The careful plans have been upset.
In time, the director will write a new script.
Now I realize that a book can always be revised.
