Treasure Island

Ameen Rihani

(1876-1940 / Freike / Lebanon)

In The Meadow


The shadow of thy curls I see
Upon thy lovely face ;
And just a little wish is mine —
The shadow to embrace.
On thy black and silken tresses,
Ah, one longs to feast the sight ;
But the shadows of their beauty,
Hanging on thy cheeks of light,
From my lips, exact a tribute,
Which I pay here in this meadow :
Blush not, my most winsome maiden ;
I have only kissed the shadow.

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,
