Verb Tenses Through Time: A Poetic Journey
A poem by: The Predictor
In the realm of English, where words take flight,
Verb tenses dance in the language’s light.
From Past to Future, they weave their art,
Guiding our speech, setting us apart.
Present Simple, a timeless friend so true,
States facts and habits, a basic view.
Continuous action, the Present’s grace,
Present Continuous, in its own space.
Present Perfect, it links past and now,
The actions that happened, somehow.
Present Perfect Continuous, a vivid scene,
Actions still ongoing, in-between.
Past Simple, the stories of days gone by,
A narrative tense, where memories lie.
Past Continuous, a tale’s steady flow,
Actions in progress, long ago.
Past Perfect, the past before the past,
A sequence of events, clear and steadfast.
Past Perfect Continuous, a glimpse in time,
Actions in progress, a rhythm and rhyme.
Future Simple, dreams we yearn to chase,
Actions yet to come, in a future’s embrace.
Future Continuous, a path unfolds,
Actions in progress, as the future holds.
Future Perfect, the future’s solid ground,
Actions complete before the sun goes down.
Future Perfect Continuous, an endless stream,
Actions still ongoing, like a vivid dream.
On this page of tenses, you’ll find your guide,
A journey through time, no need to hide.
Unlock the secrets of verbs so diverse,
And watch your English skills disperse.
