Treasure Island

Abdulla Al Khalifa


Dearest


Beautifying thy gracious words
With false-hearted smiles,
Trusting thee canst mask envy
With thy jovial whiles

Dearest Friend

Gloating uttered in secrecy
As thy kin’s fortune grows pale
Though of blood thou art allied,
Never wouldst thy malice unveil

Dearest family

Thy heart for another beats devout
Whiles love of the rightful thou received,
Thou fear of abandonment is inevitable,
Love of the rightful thou deceived

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
