Treasure Island

Stanley Cooper

(August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Re-Sequencing The Months


If we could move the months around at will
Let August put an end to winters chill
With Decembers April showers
We could shower all the flowers
And cover up the snow with daffodil

In winter when the cold is barely bearable
The Easter Bunny’d wear a coat more warmly hare-able
If March was moved to Jan
Cherry Blossoms in Japan
Would find their frigid petals irrepairable

Our structured life’s a problem of enormity
We’re stifled with demands of full conformity
Within seasonable ranges
We need those monthly changes
Or stay burdened with our calendars’ uniformity

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
