Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

I Take My Calm


I take my calm,

Hold my tears

Find my way across a starry-milked away


By the hands, there is a rose

between the dark and ripples called sin

If you fall, stand up and try again

It's not really important if you win


If my words come through the glow

If you remain outside in the din

If your rose is a path to follow

Follow your steps to the end



The early hours come hand me down

With the wind of sunshine

Soul take my calm and tears

Take me across the milkyway to home



Kiss my bones that served me so well

Lay them to rest beyond contempt

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
