Treasure Island

Listen To Learn

The only advice I can give to anyone,
Is not to seek to solicit it.
Or feel a stumbling to fall,
Is not a progressive move.
If a repeating doesn't teach...
A lesson kept to learn,
Others will be there willing to share...
Complaints about life and how it's unfair!

The only advice I can give to anyone,
Is not to seek to solicit it.
Too many are willing to give their opinion.
And from them a wish to deposit,
Complaints about life and how it's unfair!
With the hope the advice they share,
Keeps someone aware of their need...
To have the spreading of more gloom.
Listen to learn with a doing to stay aware!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
