Treasure Island

john tiong chunghoo

(Jan 21,1960 / NEW YORK)

Dinosaur lover


the land reverberates
with the loud squel of the
dinosaur

'So you also value love.
Love however small moves.'
the boy pats the head of
the large large creature

the animal squels again
the boy cries and tells
the dinosaur to look after
himself

'Be careful, there are lots
of others out there who
are dangerous be careful, '
the boy keeps repeating
to the animals.

then he wipes the tears of his
eyes and says to the animal
'May God bless you, saur'

he walks away feeling better

the land reverberates with
the animal's squel of contentment,
comfort

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
