Treasure Island

Leonardo David Tay

(7th March,1998 / Bandung, Indonesia)

Oblivion


Forgotten I shall be,
By no intent
To that, woe is me!
None will lament...

Die in grace,
Like a dying star
Stay in place,
Like my heart afar

Oblivion will have me,
But know this dear,
Done that, we shall see,
That you have none to fear

Oblivion will have me,
And in your memory I shall be amiss
As this world delights in glee,
I'll see to your comfort and joy, my miss

Oblivion will have me,
And all shall forget
My soul adrift at sea,
Will not have regret

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
