Treasure Island

Coreena Lindquist

(June 7th 1984 / Handford Cali)

Once a cousin


The hate he has,
For the man he thought he knew,
Once a cousin,
Now an enemy,
Through and through,
He won’t calm the storm,
As it is coming,
Not even the reign of god,
Can control,
What this storm will hold,
For the enemy,
And on that day,
He will stand and speak,
Of the line he crossed,
And the man that he is,
To the man on the cross

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
