Treasure Island

cyclopseven Ram

(20 January 1965 / Malaysia)

A smile

The smile of an abandoned figure
along the pavement in a corner in *Taiping
stretched far and wide as he received
the bundle of rations given
because this day his stomach
don’t have to fight the hunger.

His gentle happy smile
provoked my heart’s ripples
slowly within and within
each ripple disappeared
unto one another the love is expressed
and the blossoming warmth ensued
leaving me in blissful reverie
as I marched with great experience
that human can give anything
only smile gives appreciation.

    This poor gentleman lives from day to day and on this day he knows he will enjoy not only a full stomach but less worry about where he will find food. This day gives him the opportunity to be grateful to have just one more day of peace even if only for a day. Excellent poem ----Melvina----- (Report) Reply

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
