Treasure Island

B.B. Loring

(October 24,1995 / Maine, United States)

I Ran Through Forests Of Pine


By the steady beat of a drum
The sound of my heart
I ran through dirt roads
And forests of pine
To find were you slept
Cold toes
And trembling hands
Standing before your porch
Under the stars eyes
And the listening moon
Dirt under my fingernails
and scratches down my legs
A mess from holding this pain
From only dreaming of you
For far too long
Finally,
I gave up my heart to you

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
