Treasure Island

I Drown In Words


I drown in words
Because I cannot swim
In very long poems.

I'm lost in a maze
When the meanings
Hide in vagaries.

I can't see in dark
Uncertainties
Of narratives with no end.

But like a cat
Too dumb to run away
I think with Poetry
I will stay.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
