Treasure Island

Kathryn Miller

(Oct.1,1986 / Fairhope, Al)

A River's Run


Just like a river,
Life goes on and on,
Sometimes it gets shallow,
And sometimes it gets deep,
The churning is like a world wind,
That tries to blow you away,
But somehow you hold your ground,
And always stay,
The sun beats down,
And tries to make you fade away,
But you must go on 'cause the river runs,
Because things count on you to survive,
And thrive on what you have to offer,
So don't go missing 'cause...
The river Must run.

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,
