Treasure Island


A Tear

A tear was shed today because a boy became a man
A life of crime he chose, alone in a cell he stands

A tear was shed today a family was torn apart a mother
And father divorced and broke their Childs heart

A tear was shed today as the preacher said God Bless
A flag was given to a family as a Hero was laid to rest

A tear was shed today it fell like a drop of rain a mother
Lossed a child her joy turned to pain

A tear was shed today a man was born again his sins
Were washed away he rejoiced with family and friends

A tear was shed today a baby was born into this world
A father smiled as he held his baby girl

A tear was shed today God answered a prayer, a homeless
Man was set free from a life of despair

A tear was shed today as God gave these words to me
I thanked him for the gift of writing poetry

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
