Treasure Island

Saint Eule

(10/30/1955 / Shamokin, Pa)

Fragrance of the day


Once in while a little game we will play,
What is the fragrance of the day.

My day stinks says the pessimist
it is always that way.

Smell the roses say the optimist,
God listens when we pray.

Sometimes we follow our nose,
into places we choose.
We are the ones who decide,
to win or to lose.

Perhaps the odor is not in the air,
but instead.
Is just a little matter inside of
our head.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
