Treasure Island

Juan Olivarez

(september 12 / nyssa oregon)

Airplanes


Free as a bird, up in the sky,
On silver wings of steel.
But inside my heart does cry,
Because of how I really feel.

My stomach turns, and I feel faint.
My blood just churns, My face white paint.

Somebody get me down from here,
Give me a parachute.
Oh me, oh my, I greatly fear,
That I have soiled my suit.

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.
