Treasure Island

sallam yassin

Cobra


In Flute; flute in
Play music of glee
For his majesty
The king
Let you fear
In a flout
So with dare
Make the love flaunt
Flow
Flute fair from the depth out of dire
For your desire
Dance with dread
love so in hidden
So Move the dome on the top of basket
Free
Let the cobra king
Shunting with the tune
In float
His majesty love
So in his turn
Any shabbily tone off
In a blink of his sight
Joy restores light
Where
Replaces dim and doubt
Within winks of eyes
Reveals
Love out of veil

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
