Treasure Island

Sandra Feldman


Evolution Not Revolution


To reach out,
To try to touch the Sun,
All clouds rained out, undone,
To change the doubts,
Cultivating Truth and Love,
That is the Human stuff
A limpid pool, not bluff
For when I was a child,
My parents taught to me,
It's what you do in Life,
What you become and later Be,
That really counts, you'll see.

    As we reap, so shall we sow, the law of cause and effect - its what you do in life that counts. Good one Sandra, much truth and wisdom. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
