Treasure Island

'Elf'


the 1st thought of Christmas
with Santa's little helpers
busy making toys
toys to give away

on the other side
the era of the Middle Ages
with hobbits and burrows to see
but hidden away
is the life of the elves

each one with a beauty of a pure swan
the grace of a feather
snow white skin of youth like these cute Asians
but wise from many layers of history

how they died out
well not totally but don't know why
but always thought they evolved into Asians like today
seems like they don't age a day
but only from within

cousins of angels
descendants of elves long ago
with grace and beauty
with wisdom and youth
these are the elves today
the Asians walking by the way
but don't know what happened with the boys nowadays (*i guess that means me too () ^w^())
but girls are like elves anyways

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,
