Treasure Island

Dr Hitesh Sheth

(Birth Place: Earth)

Fountain


O gushing crescendo
Thy silent stealth
A cool and misty
Watery wealth
Oh glorious liberty,
Down the rocky graves
So calm yet spritely
Bright and brave

My sacred wash
My life my dreams
O swelling thoughts
And wholesome themes
O blissful luxuries,
By thy side
When melancholy
Or in pensive sights

My head
Thou washeth
In baptism clean
My sins of Adam
And of Eve
That original sin
That blast
A cast to loosen
To secure
a placeof reason
That paradise
Thy heaven

O you fountain of love
Elemental divine
Lodged in your mystical deep ravines
The knowledge, the truth,
The unfinished period falls
No voice be hushed,
No life treads deep
In true silence
And sleep profound
As I in childhood sweetly sleep
Untroubled where I lay
Beside thee
Above the vaulted skies

    A profound and deep poem,
    From Original Sin to Eternal rest
    You make us walk through
    Tall and green forest trees
    When suddenly it opens out
    Into a clearing where falls
    A sheet of shimmering water
    Into a deep clear cool pool
    The spay it refreshes us
    The shade it gives us rest
    And I meditate in communion
    With my God!
    Most wonderful poem I've read, my fav too.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
