Treasure Island

Tajudeen Shah


Another Shadow.

Lengthy shadows
Of trees tall and old,
Found delight and pride
On the porch white and clean.
The silent village house.
Stood all alone veiled in gloom.
I sat burning on the hearth of life,
Thinking deep and sobbing ON.
Past follies all turned pale ghosts
To frenzy on mind’s screen.
Though no lights of any breed
Had its lenient rays in path,
Found many a judges around
To stamp me INSANE.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Even shadows have their delights, I found, when wind had its presence on them by the dusk. But, myself sat all alone veranda brooding over personal worries unlimited.

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;
