Treasure Island

King and I

I saw a boy in the clouds
He smiled down aon me,
he showed his teeth and stuck out his tounge
and threw out a dash of irony

I saw a girl in the sun
She must have been his friend
She had that same smile and sparkle
and as I could feel, my heart did bend

I saw a man in the leaves
He was reaching out his hand
but it looked for like a wave than yearning
and I wished to understand

I saw a princess in the raindrops
She was attached to a man'r arm
She had plastic legs and tiger eyes
and that shouldn't set off any alarm

I saw a King in the horizon
He had perfection all in a crown
He had love woven in his fingertips
and like a glass of water, he drank it all down

I saw a girl in the moon
She must have loved the king
She had a fairly large grin and a sparkle
that made every bird want to sing

I saw a couple in the sunset
They had their hearts and fingers laced
The had their vision slightly impaired,
but they knew they were rightly placed

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
