Treasure Island

James Asher

A Sonnet to the Morning

Sweet amber nectar enliven the natural pallet of Gaia.
Respond to the sacred journey of the golden chariot, awaken!
Dawn breeze sing your melody to the nature of Earth
Who, from the embraces of Nyx, from their slumber softly shaken!
Leaf and flower, with fond embrace, cradle the riches of Helius
Who, from the east has risen, rides the arbiter of life.
The sacred steeds, on hoof of fire, charge forward from the east
And, hail all from the mantle green with an incandescent feast.
And though, with its glorious spite, the chariot rids the day of night.
So ventured forward the day in wondrous light, by Helius born.
The goddess of the night returns to her abode - she is a slumber,
As the Muses direct the sweet chorus of birth; day is born.
As the morning song sings to those who have awoken,
I am the MORNING! I have spoken, and I am awoken.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
