Treasure Island

Egal Bohen



The apple was a story
For if something is not known
Guidance must be given
Before we can find home
For those who need no learning
Know the consequences too
But laws are passed
For those that don’t
That’s what
The apple
Had to do
It’s taking was journey
For man to set upon
The point to learn
Was learning
Where all answers do come from
The Apple
Was a symbol
A law
That it was wrong
To take something
You should not have
To man did not belong
It could have been a melon
One day perhaps
A star
The message
It has stayed the same
We need first learn
Who we are
For if all had been for taking
When man first got his brain
If all had been available
All was sunshine
Without rain
There wouldn’t
Any loving be
Just pleasure
In time it will be plain to us
What the apple had to do
In fact
We have
To use our lives
To find out what is true
For passion
Perhaps waiting
For taking
Giving too
For self control
Comes from within
Your conscience

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;
