Treasure Island

Zachary Clougher

(Pi-day / Lowell, MA)



To be remembered….
To be loved….
To be respected….
To be….
It is enough for me just,
To be….
I have lived,
I have died.
With this respect bestowed upon me,
I give back to you,
The respect which you say is for me.
I have lived,
I have died.
You are the born and yet alive.
This respect is for you,
For me,
It is enough for me just,
To be….
No to have been,
It is your turn,
To Be.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
