Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


melodrama


poverty drives him away
as she stays in the faraway village

her hands cold her heart so empty
he works so hard in the city

the promises of love makes him endure
the pain and sorrow

she waits for those long years
she keeps herself pure all for him

he comes back bringing his fortune
now wanting to ask her hand in marriage

her parents force her to marry
the son of the rich merchant in the city

disappointed she kills herself
she is found hanging on the ceiling of the mansion

he leaves the place wanting to forget
he writes love poems that end in tragedy

always in his dreams she is with him
the following morning he meets his happy death

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
