Treasure Island

Sadiqullah Khan

*I Have Heard Also

I pledged not nor am I the rose that climbeth
To the lips that sing loves tempests unknown
When the hanged verse thou hanged again
In the mystic river of love when thou collecting self
In desire for the friend that showeth light in the dark
Watered thou sayeth by love and flourish in thy heart
The valentine for lovers thou left to search their names
Thou hast written a line for every one but whom
In the maze of words shall see or lost forever

Love shalt not be faint as thou canst speaketh thy heart
Love the mysterious it is said but love the hidden revealeth
Love shalt shine love like sun of the dawn the cry of the one
Love as my beloved like graffiti on the wall or the night
Love that falleth like dark Nox on every home with glint
Love the moon when the beloved stepeth into lovers abode
Love shalt taketh the nature into the beauties of the Eden
Love shalt be the open eye when all eyes closed
Love shalt be my guide whence my guides leave midway
Love is my destiny the prayer I have from the Soul
Love is the friend but alas who knoweth where liveth
In the heart of mine and thine and every lover
In the heart of the beloved I have heard also

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
