Treasure Island

Jubril Balogun

(Sept 21 1980 / Ogun state, Nigeria)

A New Day


The night is done
The dawn has come
A new day is born and
Yesterday we can only mourn

The moon is setting
With darkness at its trail
The clock is ticking
Bringing the day to age

Cock-a-doodle doo! ! !
A distant crow afirms
A day is on the loose
Make haste and join the race
The one to save the day

Black or white,
Right or left, far or near
We all choose our paths
To meet two ends
That seem far apart.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
