Conditional verb use

0

When I first looked at Grammerly one of the test sentences I typed in was, "I would that the world consisted of sugar and spice and all things nice." An acceptable explanation of conditional verb use came up but one that I feel does not apply in this case. Perhaps I am being a little too demanding of automated proof reading but I deliberately used this phrase in order to test the sensativity of the system. Apart from being slightly archaic, my phrase has nothing much wrong with it, grammatically speaking.

What does the community think?
