Treasure Island

Robert Edmondson


Looking out my window


Looking out my window, watching

People, multitudes of people

pass by going on to destinies

unknown to me.



Looking out my window, feeling

Nature, still struggling

to maintain balance

as the rain pounds against

my window.



Looking out my window, wondering

Where have all the gentle times gone?

the police car screams by

too much violence in this world.



Looking out my window, gazing

I see all that transpires

in the glistening spider's web.



Looking out my window, seeing

the spider dance 'round

always working to keep its

world from ripping away

in the rain of the evening.

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,
