Treasure Island

Vivian Thompson

Love and other hallucinations

On the canvas of the midnight sky,
A swift bright streak just caught my eye,
Only a brief glimpse is what I got.
I gazed with a star struck awe,
Lost in the beauty of the shooting star!
I closed my eyes and I made my wish,
Hoping and praying she'd fall on me.
Oh my God I hoped so much,
For the wish had me in its clutch.
Slowly as I opened my eye,
An angel stood in front of me,
Gentle as the moon and bright as the sun.
At that moment for I knew
My wish on her had come true.
Lost for words and blank as paper,
I spoke in a confused stammer.
As she spoke in my heart I knew,
She indeed was from heaven like the morning dew,
An angel for me by my side.
Its been long since the star has flown,
Never did I forget the wish I made,
For how can I when with me is the wish,
The wish I made that day was You.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
