Treasure Island

Andrew Matthews


Like Summer Even Though It's Winter


Gaze up towards
the pale blue sky
and mourn for the
deep blue days of Summer.

Crunch, crunch go your boots
in the cold snow which has fallen
to lie on the hard ground once again.

The coldness of the winter air
numbs your ears and hands
making you long to follow
Summer to the warmth of spanish sands.

But if that's not possible
take heart in the fact that Summer
will return to banish winter once again.

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.
