Treasure Island

Peter S. Quinn


Frail


Frail is the seed of earth
With every falling's time
Day and day by growing's worth
Till it reaches prime

Fair but frail like every rose
That into the morning shines
Away your petal then goes
As fate draws its wilting lines

    Nicely done. Though short, it has great detail which is more than what i can say for some poets on here, sometimes including myself. :)
    Best of luck!

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
