Treasure Island

Everyday


No day of the year is not someone's birthday,
Every day of the year is;
No day of the year is not somebody's deathday,
Daily do some die at battle and some die at ease;

Every day some more people are born
Whilst some in turn dare to die,
Many are born and brought in the morn
And many do on a daily basis eternally lie;

No day passes by without laughter,
When happy dust flies from floor to rafter;
No day passes away without tears,
When one's hopes are subjugated by fears;

So, Lord, spare me tears and troubles of this cursed earth,
That I may walk proudly and prosperously 'till I lose my dear breath,
That I may boldly face that relentless rival dubbed death
And, Lord, grant me a qualitative currency of courage and confidence,
That I may be a hero when I leave for good this envious earth.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
