Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)


Silently I stepped around
not to disturb anyone with a sound.
Just to enjoy the morning silence
where my mind could wander around.

Enjoy the peace in the air
without intruding voices everywhere
and enjoy the solitaire
that the morning held there.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
