Treasure Island

Naeem Jakhar

(03-15-74 / Jakhar East, Kharian, Gujrat, Pakistan)

In This City


In this city, the silver falls
In yellowish night and whitish cold
The silver falls on the gold

A shivering passer-by
And behind the curtain you and I
Watch this scene, very bold
When the silver falls on the gold

Yet I have my concerns
Strangeness lurks and desire burns
This keeps my soul on the hold
While the silver falls on the gold

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.
