Treasure Island

Ellen Shaw


Let Us Forget


lay me down
at the foot of a tree
on cold cold earth

Cover me up
with a blanket of snow
invisible beneath
hide me

and I will sleep
and sleep and sleep and sleep
and when you sleep
don't dream of me

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.
