Treasure Island

John G. Nelson

(August 24,1976 / Monrovia, Liberia)

Day Has Broken Since


Day has broken ever since
Dressing up to get to work
Here to walk, getting train
Sound of it arrival, it wings

Ye ‘re so many getting out
Ye ‘re so many getting in…
Smiles & sometime frowns
Yet the dawn seem pretty

Ride pretty, but soon ends,
Yet, walking many miles still,
Distance widens & embraces
If at all, I couldn’t praise today?

Here I spoke with my boss
Yet, I couldn’t get started,
How disappointing a day,
I pleaded, but got no smile

Here, stands a lonely day
Chatting with young plants
Looking the sky for comfort
And listening to passing cars.

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
