Treasure Island



A song of the evening
Wow! ! ! ! ! I behold the scene
In that city of love
In XTS I devour
All the verses
poured out
on scraps of petals
never say thou
at sunset the gathering
with goblet in hand
waiting at taverns
like a pilgrim forlorn
with tearful eyes
that I have forgotten
thy love filled eyes.

Under that banyan tree-
yes under that banyan tree
the skies so clear
a promise we made
holding hands
thus love we proclaimed
the world did see
Recession or no recession
In verses we poured
The angels sang with us
The seraphs retired on high
The stars broke out
In ethereal blues
And myriad hues

How can’st one say
First make the sun
in private shine
And bid the moon
to wane in crescents divine
So that he may
his beams confine
In answer to thine sublime
That after
the floodlight of morn azure
And fullfilment of desires
We face not each other.

Know ye once again
And see my face
Need not be illusions
Make them real
Whirl up thy head
And screw up thy heart
And make this
Forever to last.

    The angels sang with us
    The seraphs retired on high
    The stars broke out
    Now the epitaphs of someone spoke out
    The angels may be quintessential
    The seraphs may be jovial
    The stars may be spatial
    But the lives are lethal
    Only once the mind is coral
    Yet once the love may be banal
    The rides may be rocky
    The boat of love oscillating in the tides
    But still love has to be up and withstanding
    Over every troublling sickle bending...

    A exgratia to those who has not been able to realise what true love is......some poeple's tavern are yet just overdraft to be the playground of only Saturn and there is where the Sun eludes.An elexir remains until elexir as a prophylaxix becomes lethal in a slow pace but boosting life through.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
