Treasure Island

Nestor David Armas

(02/22/1984)

Any Price...


Any price Id pay for the sun to shine,

For the flowers to bloom,

For a breeze to play with your hair,

All this I wish to give to you as if it were mine,

Just to get you out of that gloom,

Just to brighten your eyes, take away that stare,

Any price Id pay for a jester to make you laugh,

For a handsome man to love you back,

For the world to do your bidding,

Of all the things I want for you, this is only half,

If it were up to me, nothing you would lack,

You'd be sitting pretty knitting,

Nah, I take that back I think,

You'd be laughing, singing beautiful in pink,

Not a care in the world,

But no frizz in your hair or that its curled,

Any price Id pay to put the wind under your wings,

To give you many wonderful shiny things,

For you to experience pleasure,

Unbridled and without measure,

Any price Id pay just to see you smile,

A smile so dazzling I could see it from a mile...

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
