Treasure Island

Venus Fire

(China)

My world


You throw me food
Should I eat it?
You come closer
Should I run?

You keep trying to talk to me
Should I respond?
You make these weird sounds
Like a dying animal
Should I correct you?

Again and again you come
Trying to win me over
I’m close to losing this war
Should I even try?

But I am lost
With nowhere to run
I am hurt and cannot fly
Must take food or I shall die

I hop slowly steadily forward
Grab the piece of food ahead
Eat it slowly
Suppressing my joy and I
Realize…
It’s good.

Now I trust you
Strange tall creature
Now I allow you in
My gooseful world

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,
