Treasure Island

Days Are Running Away


Oh day!
Why are you scramming from
What you should have faced
Rest your veins and chain your haste
Jetting away your lenght
Is shortening our miles to grave

Oh little boy!
Life is not just playing with toys
Please make short not your joys
With brooding on these bad things
At your budding age, you can't soil
Aren't the cannibalism of your people enough?
Slaying each other like famish wolves
Oh little boy!
Let me leave at my prime
So the world could end before its time

Oh day!
Why are you scramming from
These you should have faced
I am little but an ace
Just lead me to set the pace

Oh Little boy!
I have seen many of your predecessors
With same as your diamond fate
But as the lane grew wilder
They fade to their faith
Oh Little boy!
I can't stay
To let night take my place
Let us run at our prime
So the world could end before its time

Oh day!
Please stay

Little boy
Only if men would let peace reign
And tag drinking of blood insane

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
