Treasure Island

Mariam Taufeeq

Mere verse.

Imagination is but a river, curving through a plain
Slipping and sliding, dancing and gliding
Through mountains and terrain!
Changing, changing, changing.

Tactfulness is but a veil, lies cast over truth,
Wending and smiling, bending and fighting,
To weaken pain, they call it Ruth.
But failing, failing, failing.

Smiles are but boomerangs, presents that liven,
Faces to faces, places to places.
Smiles weak, strong and constantly given.
Flying, flying, flying.

Dreams are but flames, clutching your soul tight.
Soaring with hopes, casting away mopes,
Living with you, from trails of dawns to night.
Burning, burning, burning.

Verses are but fades, fades of emotion.
Anger to might, happiness to flight.
So strong that mere words cannot put into motion.
Singing, singing, singing.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
