In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson
August

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I have to say, I'm with John Humphreys on this one. I hate reading about something in the past that's written in the present tense.
