Treasure Island

Piyush Dey

(India)

Can’t you listen


It was just yesterday,
That I met you…..
Playing and laughing we were,
In such a jolly mood.
Then suddenly your hand slipped away,
I couldn't got hold of it,
It just faded away.
Like stars on sky fade away when the sun kisses the dawn,
Neither do you know, nor I,
How a song is sung,
Just moving like clouds we are,
Up the sky above and above,
Like climbing stairs to the listening heaven,
With our silent footsteps.
We are going somewhere very far away,
Opposite of you I am.
But,
Where are we going, dear?
Can’t you listen what my heart sings?

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
