Treasure Island

James Pendleton


God's Own


Flying by night into the day
The wings I ride are made of clay
Soaring so high as only I dare
The Sun in my eyes with hardly a glare
Below the heavens, amidst the confusion
We all live knowing the illusion
Together we fly alone in thought
Our hearts combined by the love we sought
The harder I look, the lower I fly
Weighed down by the burdens of the sky
The stars twinkle with brilliant light
By speaking my truth, I own the night.

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,
