Treasure Island

Carolyn Sears

(March 30-1950 / Magnolia, Arkansas)

Children Shadows


Into the wind children voices echo’s
From near and far
Laughter of joy
Having fun in a large meadow
Linking to a empty space
The first rising of the moonlit

Night
The images of children within
The moonlit night
Vision of children playing
Around the old, old oak

Tree..
In the first rising of the moonlit
Night,
Vision of children playing within
The realms of shadows run.
In and out of the moonlit night
The children softly, softly fades
Into the night..

    This is beautiful, as are the hearts of the innocence the -young, we must try to protect

    This is a dream-like state of a poem, , It reminds me of a scene set possible hundreds of years ago,

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
