Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


a boy and the snake and the tree that cures...


a snake is bitten by another snake
it is bleeding and leaves and looks for a tree
to take some sap
for its own cure,

a boy sees what the snake is doing
waits and when the snake leaves
the boy bites the tree
to take the sap

the boy is cured of its long sickness
the tree had long been there near him
but it is the snake that points to him
the tree that can cure his own malady.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
