Treasure Island

Peter S. Quinn

Only Time Will Tell

Only time will tell
What a heart can grow
Its wishes and spell
Experience shall know
Upcoming each morning
Lives circling tides
On roads ahead learning
To look at both sides

You are yourself giving
Ties you have tied
Remembering and living
When daily works abide
Each blossom's desire
With might goes bliss
Like morning's new fires
Is each of its kiss

You make your own road
Where dreams come thru
Its work and its load
Is a part of what's you
You don't need those
That never gives a worth
They are thorn on a rose
And dust of the earth

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.
