Treasure Island

A Midsummer Nights Dream


Past that midnight
After the passion fight
Spent he lay.

The shimmering bedroom light
Hid their faces in shades.

She drew him close.
Rested her face on his bare chest;
Whispered: ‘sweet spending’.

He glanced her sideways.
She was smiling; her eyes.

He caressed her wavy locks.
Within silently exclaimed:
'What a spendthrift is this life! '

The covers were gently pulled up.
They now push them into sleep;
Drown them into another dream.

Outside, Time was busy
Pulling down the covers
To dawn out another day
That to culminate into
Its own night…

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.
