Treasure Island

Giovanna Marasco

(22nd September 1992 / A hospital)

Sailors Delight..


Her smile flickers
And sets
Across lips
As red as the sky
That night;
She has the power
To make you feel
Incredible...
Like the highest mountain
Was merely a mole-hill;
As if the world,
Was yours to hold
In the palms of you trembling hands
You can hold her
But you can't contain her
She will never be yours..
..She will never be mine
And we know it..
But still we smile.

    Giovanna, you've captured the essence of her beauty, but containing it is something entirely different. Delightful poem... well done! !

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
