Treasure Island

rains of bloom


A contract with the devil


The devil comes
at night
when the old man drinks his rum
at night.

When the poison is consumed
a body's no longer sober
then the devil comes
only
at night.

The devil brings his ink
the devil brings his pen
then the devil comes
only
at night.

The devil comes with a pretty face
the devil comes with charming words
the devil comes with a pen,
hungry for your ink.

The contract with the devil
written with red ink
written in sharp pen
known also as a knife.

Sometimes called a
ripper
a reeper
a cutter
a bleeder...
and sometimes called
DEAD.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
