Treasure Island

Maryam M.Rifat Zanjir

(september18-1990)

Children


Silently I swear
Heavnely hopes are there
This world can be a better place
Starting with a faithful prayer
I pray for the poor child
Whose tears went dry
To find something to eat
To have a story to read
I pray for the lost child
Who wonders how to fight
To be warm away the cold
To be home away the road
I pray for the homeless child
Who cries of hunger and fright
To get his dreams home
To stand in the happiness hall
The change someday will rise
From the innocence of a baby eyes
The children someday will fly
Heavenwards, As the angels in the sky

    It is very good when we can help a poor child in reality. But sometimes we can’t anything but pray.
    It was a very good idea to write the poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
