Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Puppy Love


Smiling from ear to ear
Her vermilion glow
Glistening in a midsummer morn
As she waits like a pledged virgin
To suckle the rouge away
From her beloved's lips
As he appears from behind a mammoth door
In a checkered shirt and Ralph Lauren pants
As she rushes and jumps like a bouncy kangaroo
To his yearning waistline
As a clasping kiss awakens the surroundings
From its profound slumber
Three years to the day she saw him last
A lass of 20 years delirious with desire
Welcoming her prince back into her world
As a full-fledged lover
And not as a statutory pariah
To the stitched eyelids
Of Draconian law

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
