Treasure Island

Mother Dearest


Blessed I am
for waking
to your beauty
every morning

Every night
I start to doze
to your sounds
and wind that blows

Out and about
just being free
your beauty surrounds us
wherever we may be

A day on the beach
and still close to home
or a picnic at the park
while watching ducks roam

In moments of sadness
all I have to do,
is look out my window
and see a part of you

Your people so friendly
kind and relaxed
not in a rush for anything
leaving the rest perplexed.

Things to do
for shapes and sizes
from late sleepers
to early risers

Your best feature
a welcome home sign
something so perfect
only nature could design

Never to leave you
is my one true hope
away from you for long
I just won't cope

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
