GOLDEN FISH


The golden fish
That some want dish
Is what will spend time to admire
And their admiration begets desire

The golden fish
Has no hiding place
Because to see thy face
So many wish

The golden fish
Even in the sea can not hide
For soon comes that tireless tide
That makes the proud waves upon thee unleash

The golden fish
If found in a kingdom
From the nobles receives gifts at random
But then they would want to keep it on a leash

The golden fish
Gets the beat bait
But if thou labours and wait
Thou shall never perish

The golden fish
If thou let flourish
In thee my voice
Thou I shall make my choice

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
