Treasure Island

Stan Petrovich

(10/27/1950 / Fort Riley, KS)

A Ghostly Seasound


The Peal of a Distant Foghorn:
I think it is real
Or it the wind blowing into my ear
In some anatomically weird way:
It is a grunt in the air;
It attracts nothing
But warns of New England's rocky presence.
The ship I can discern
The outline of
Is a ghost ship
So it will not photograph...
I will board it one day
And look back at the shore like a stranger
Hearing a foghorn.

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.
