Treasure Island

Jerry Oneal Jr.

Dreamer's Dream

Many Dreams Just Never Come True.
But, 'Dreamers Never Die'.
'Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder'.
Perhaps, This is Why! ! !

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It's been said to me 'You're nothing but a 'Dreamer'. Well, My reply is & has always been 'Without people like me, you'd be living in the dark, & still riding horses'. Having lived in poverty for so long, diminished as well, for various reasons, I've become intimate with the Quote, & I'm not sure who said it...'Dreams Die Hard'. As I watch someone else more able, develop inventions & I've conceived, sometimes years before....This poem dropped out of the 'BLUE' in it's entirety around 1983 when I discovered Parabolic Mirrors as a natural energy source, having nearly blown up an offshore oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico where I was employed....the Fire Chief flew out and explained what happened..I added 2 + 2 and came up with an solar engine...later on I learned N.R.E.L.(Natural Renewable Energy Lab) developed a Parabolic Trough, which is extremely effective over just about everything else. My version is about 700 times more effective, because of legalities I'm still defeated. Ergo, credence to the Poem.

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
