Treasure Island

Sheri Walters

(Richmond, VA)


I gave my love a melody
I gave my love a song
But all he did was shake his head
And leisurely strolled along

I gave my love a whisper
I gave my love a kiss
But all he did was turn his head
And said not here, like this

I gave my love my passion
I gave my love my heart
But all he did was close his lids
And sighed and turned to depart

I gave my love my virtue
I gave my love my all
But all he did was trudge ahead
And refused to heed my call

I gave my love a rose
I gave my love the thorns
And all I did was smile and said
You will rue this woman's scorn

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
