Treasure Island

Grace


A king sends his footmen before
he ever steps through the door
when there is danger
but danger of what?
what if there's nothing to fear
does he anticipate to hear
from only trusted hands
when distance reveals a truth
irreversible kindnesses are the proof
honor and integrity still stands
but for how long
to a heart that's endured
great cruelty and pain
a parachuted fall
not the same as goodbye
set down gently by a great king's hand
whose concern lives on
as does the love
for the man

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
