Treasure Island

Edwina Reizer

(12/22/1937 / LAKEWOOD, NJ)

Determined


Another dawn is here to face
And face it I will do.
I’ll give not one thought in my mind
to how I feel about you.
I shall paint my nails the color red
And when that chore is done,
I’ll paint my toenails the color blue
and make believe I’m having fun.

And who’s to say what fun can be
and what can bring a smile?
It’s not the one whose heart is brittle
and cold as bathroom tile.
I’ve given up on that one man
That used to bring me laughter.
So go and find another fool.
Go find what you are after.

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,
