Treasure Island


(11/07/1975 / Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines)

My Angel In The Net

J-ust the other night
I have seen an angel
Enchanting my sight
that I didn’t foretell
to chat for the night.

O-ver a candle’s light
... Burning upon a shell,
Her face glows delight
That made me to tell
You got me at first sight.

N-ever I seen in the site
A smile full of golden bell
Ringing rhyme of delight
Until I saw you as an angel
Filled with flickering light

A -prayer full of limelight
beckons my lonely heart
That you shall be the light
To take me out apart
From this den of my plight.

L-ife I have upon my sight
Is filled with broken heart
Yet when I behold the light
Of an angel with all her art,
Hope shields my lonely night.

Y-et in solitude, I often cry
Moaning as sorrows fry
My fate with emptiness,
With life endless bitterness,
I long for someone’s smile
To inspire me to sail a mile.

N-othing may change this fate
But hope entwined my faith
That someday I may find
Someone whom I can define
Love is art of full of happiness
And never a sting of bitterness.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
