Treasure Island

Age


We were young and gave no thought to
anymore than today,
to life or death, sickness or health
we just lived, come what may.

Believed ourselves invincible
while in the blush of youth.
Until tomorrow ravaged us
with evidence and truth.

It's sudden that the signs appear
of immortality.
They come in from your blind side, just
appearing glaringly.

Then as those before us, we must
except what fate demands.
To realize we all grow old
and trust we're in God's hands.

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;
