Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

From Hearts To Tears


Stepping stones
From hearts to tears
To air and clouds
To thunderstorms
To lightning
To BOOM-BANG
And you're knocked
To your knees
Then the wind will pass
To blue skies
That hold the flowers
That shed the raindrops
And the chill cradles
The loneliness
Into the night

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.
