Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

Early Works-Woman


Woman
a creature profound
with mind unstable yet sound.

Woman
sometimes called the weaker sex
this saying is a pretext.
Though their skin may be softer than mans,
this does not mean they have no strength in their hands.

Woman
sent as an underling of man
sometimes gains the ruling hand

Woman
though love is their strength,
in more cases it is their weakness.
One of the gentlest creature at times,
the fiercest at other times.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
