"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

how to make three wishes?

hi everyone. I'm confused. If we are granted three wishes can we say I wish I will be richer? or should we say I was richer? or I would be richer?

    @Dora, like you say, both these phrases are correct. I think I'd probably be more like to use 'I wish I were rich,' but I don't know why!
