Treasure Island

An Angel Without Wings


My House


Imagine for awhile: a large brick house
Six bedrooms, three and a half bath in all
Acres of green grass home the the deer mouse
Two ponds out front with fountains to enthrall
Around the ponds a figure eight driveway
Leading to a red sun-filled open door
Giant antique vases stand guard today
In the kitchen, once carpet now wood floor
A portion, a fragmented piece of mine; my house

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
