Treasure Island

(1925 / Chicago)

God's Humor


Spring leaps in
And pirouettes with joy -
The buds poke out
Into the new-found warmth.

Old Winter's left behind
And soon forgotton
If the weather holds.

But sometimes,
The season drowns
The new life found,
and only mud remains.

Thus God's humor
Does astound us.
And we ask, 'WHY? ',
But I don't think God pays attention.

Poem of the Day

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,
