Treasure Island

Liam McCoppin


Fire Storm


The land awashed with fire
Not a good decision in hindsight
Now the trees lie dead around the shire
Not long ago we were all right

The black trees dead
Decisions sorely lacked
Graves for all who cared
The ground is black

It came fast, fast on the wind
The people not alert
What mongrel would cast this sin
And not be brought to court

The sun was blood red
Against the clouds
Smoke filled the air with dread
The fire coming, no stopping its bounds

The carnage was over
Animals lying dead on the Earth
Standard of living just went lower
Time for rebuild and rebearth

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,
