Treasure Island

Psaltydog's Thoughts

Castle of Acquafredda

When life got tough and I needed to think
When emotions soared beyond my drink
I would go to my castle on a hill

Ten miles away from my vanity
An easy climb to serenity
I found peace within my castle on a hill

A grassy knoll above the plain
Walls of ruin are all that remain
Sheltering ghosts in a crumbling domain
I sought solace within my castle on a hill

Today, I know not what to do
Today, my heart is torn in two
I’m six thousand miles from my castle on a hill

I would clear my heart of its cavity
If I could free myself from this gravity
And soar away to my castle on a hill

A grassy knoll above the plain
Walls of ruin are all that remain
The pain within my heart would refrain
Just to walk within my castle on a hill

So, I close my eyes to what is real
I close my mind to what I feel
The surrounding scene seems so surreal
Dreaming, I'm within my castle on a hill

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;
