Treasure Island

(Southern California)

Snowy Castle


Upon a green hill
The grand and gleaming castle
Gleaming brighter than the sun
Stainless, flawless
A proud and radiant gem
Lovely gardens
A guarding golden gate
A priceless estate
Onlookers passing by
Took an aweing glance
Some tired to enter
But their desire declined
Some tried to defile the walls
But efforts wasted
Arrogent people didn't know
How valued this castle be
Snowy white
Clean and bright
Immaculate and chaste
A strong foundation
Never worn by storms
Other castles stood by
Below morning glory
Stained, withered
Weak, weathered
Wild parties
Drawing people in
Defiling the wallls
Of the other castles
How foolish
Wise was the pure snowy castle
Saving it gallantly
Only three men
Dressed in white
Pure and bright
Were permited to enter
Gracious beings worthy of this honor
Snowy castle worthy of their dweeling
This castle is a temple
Too sacred for the foolish mortals....

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
