Treasure Island

How Gloomy I am

How gloomy i am

On the tossing water i float
Like a straw shredded from the field
Unknow of its own destination

How gloomy i am

Like a lost dear strayed from its herd
Tracing no track nor any shelter

How gloomy i am

Like a young bird with pinions broken
Fluttering in vain, taking no flight

How gloomy i am

Like a bud with no petals
Lying in the bed, following the wind

How gloomy i am

Like a fallen yellow leaf
Displaced from its native home
Rusting its pain in deaf ears

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,
