Treasure Island

Home Coming


Day’s are swift like an arrow
Hours speeds away like a speedboat
Minutes racing like a ferrari
Seconds fleeing like a shot bullet
The day now waits nomore

A wasted yesterday,
Today a dudgeon

When each seconds don’t count
Hours becomes a duff
Moments are treasureD
Only by a man with a wise wit

Yesterday here I am
Today away will I be
For a quest find I for myself
To set sails into the land unknown
And bring home the chest of treasure

On the wide sea for days and nights
Sweet memories drifting away
Precious moment away swift on its wheel
The past a pinch of dust in the wild wind
My days are now dark
My night now one of cloudfull climes

Alone in a world unknown
With family I long to be

Now tomorrow is now today
And the future is now here
The nights now a story
Days spent in darkness has ended
The dawn of a new era is here
For in my quest
I unlocked the chest of success

I beg you birds of the sky
To bring new news to my home
That I am coming home
Not as a mere man
But with the majestic entrance of a king
For I come back decorated with valor

The new moments will soon be here
And a new memory will soon be born

Home here I come

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;
