Treasure Island

The Silent Sword

(April 2,1997)

Droplet


Thousands of little drops,
The rain falls down.
Vessels of the hurt,
Sinking in the ground.

Only a few of the many,
And of the many of the few,
Is a single crystal droplet,
In which everything is true.

As the droplet falls downward,
You have seconds to decide.
To pick from the thousands,
And find that which is mine.

Once it meets the earth,
It will fade into time.
So none will ever find it,
And never read the lines.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
