El Dorado


I have a place called heaven
Where my spirits rise and soar -
It's the chair by the TV,
When Countdown's on at four.

I have a place called heaven
Where my happiness is true -
It's everywhere my children are,
Now they're a motley crew.

I have a place called heaven
Where contentment knows no end -
It's those quiet moments with my wife,
She's my lover and my friend.

I have a place called heaven
Where there's peace, no need for sun -
It's those writing moments all alone,
Waiting for the Muse to come.

I have a place called heaven
It fits in with my style -
No expensive flights or train rides,
I'm in heaven all the while!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
