Treasure Island

Communication Technology

Computers are at the cutting edge of the information age,
although books have a much longer history and they are still
more important than computers for in-depth reading.
A screen attracts, but black print on a white page engages.

The internet is useful to access facts and figures.
The internet can be mined for knowledge in any fields.
I listen to a few attractive pop singers on YouTube.
I listen to quite a few poets read their verses on YouTube.

I think the desktop is easiest to use and here to stay.
Despite the laptop and the tablet, the desktop will not date.
I use an older mobile rather than the latest touch screen model.
I play music on DVDs and CDs too, rather than an iPod.

Except for the car stereo, I use communication technology when still.
When I go for a long walk or run, I like to be alone at the tiller.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
