Treasure Island

ListenANgels


Angels in fairyland
cry out from a flat screen
yet we hear not their voice

goats have no place here Erotica
nor have merchants with their measuring implements
we are labels children
to us the moon weighs light
starlit we balance with ease on the earth's rim
from supermarket trolley
to the folly of the pedal-bin

yet they persist

still you can sniff the air
see how the sky slants in between the trees
but of it all be well aware and ill at ease
gouge out the mortar
find cracks in the dark
and from cock-crow to twilight
pay heed when dogs bark

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.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
