Treasure Island

Maria C. Costa

(Portugal)

A Chant To Life


This intends to be a chant to Life
To every moment of joy, even strife
To every thread of inspiration
All privileges and incantation

To wise thoughts and deep insights
Imparted to others - days and nights
To everyone's quest for happiness
And acceptance of sadness

To daily throbs of hearts passionate
Embracing love - pure, ultimate
To every human achievement
Towards the world's development

To nations' struggles for their progress
Aimed at their children's peace, happiness
A chant to the Most Saviour
To Him we highly praise thanking for every favour!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
