Treasure Island

Godfrey Morris

(August 1,1982 / Kingston, Jamaica)

Destiny


We who are called morals
were tossed on this stage
to display gifts divine.
Everyone a say
Every man his day.

Thy skills once locked in cage
now unleashed!
We cuddle and fold on this stage
to fulfil our destinies.

Like bees in hives
our honey will unearth
sweet worthy passions
To cause the angels to sing
chorus Holy!

To cheer the virtues of mankind cause
as they cross life's treacherous line.

A claim to be worthy
Our heavenly prize.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
