Treasure Island

Michael Bogle

(08/15/1963 / Russellville, Kentucky)


I wondered, and pondered, what must it all mean,
I did not know if it was too late, or if i had been seen,
Like the time, when i was small, i took the nickel from the jar,

Not even a cup of coffee, can you buy
No not even a doughnut, not even a peice of pie.

Oh, i wonder, and i ponder, what must it all mean,

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
