Treasure Island

(Niagara Falls, NY)

Black Widow

She sat in front of a crystal ball
the window and the moon
contemplating the fate of the man
who lies in the other room

destiny brought him as destiny does
someone to touch someone to love her
Fate plays a trick on a man who takes
the widow as his lover

She'll look into you with ebony eyes
she is a beauty you can not deny
but she's just a women as you will discover
In search of a faithful lover

There he lies in the opposite room
though his nose courses her favorite perfume
Will his eyes open or there will he lie
awaiting the day that he wished he could die

there's suddenly movements somewhere in the room
His eyes slowly open there's no more perfume
She stand there beside him as he begins to
recover holding her faithful lover

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
