Treasure Island

Edwin Markham

(23 April 1852 - 7 March 1940 / Oregon City, Oregon)

A Creed


There is a destiny that makes us brothers:
None goes his way alone:
All that we send into the lives of others
Comes back into our own.

I care not what his temples or his creeds,
One thing holds firm and fast
That into his fateful heap of days and deeds
The soul of man Is cast.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
