Treasure Island

Carolyn Ford Witt

(1943 / Indiana USA)



Across a bridge..down in the park
I watch daylight..appear from dark
Where shadows stretch...from trees so long
And tinkling brooks...can do no wrong.

As starry night..turns into day
And birds sing what may
The light will slowly...spread across
And soon it will..Landscape emboss.

The pleasant quiet..of this morn
That all this world..has come to scorn
For busy noise..will now emerge
And chaos again..this land insurge.

For in the light..will all subdue
The pleasantness...that quiet renews
My Savior pushed aside
As in life's jungle...we do reside.

But after all...this day is done
Enfold me glowing Son
To hold me once again
And wash away...this life of sin.

To hold me up...for I am weak
And in this Heaven seek
Please hold me now...O' Holy One
And lead me back...My Father's Son.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
