Treasure Island

Valsa George

Stack of Wealth

What wealth for man to fare
The gift of power, the will to dare
Wit so sharp and insights rare
A heart to share and a soul to care

A marvelous thing of joy and pain
The prime motif in God’s divine design
Bestowed with intelligence to discern
And light like a candle to burn

In kingly glory he stands erect n’ tall
Over all animals that beneath him crawl
Blessed generously with copious gifts and skills
And discretion to ward off all sinister ills

Though here on Earth, uncrowned he be
He is the royal prince of the life to be
And legal heir to celestial glee
After his perilous voyage across the sea

    Beautiful just beautiful. Another deep penetration to the soul, mind and
    heart. There is one that is greater than you and I. He holds the key to
    our future and can unlock any door. Great is He our God. Very nice

    Wisdom, beauty of art, super nature and piety close-knitted. Neither the rhyme-scheme nor silvery flow attempted the meaning. Perfect. (Report) Reply

    Man, his worth, here and after within such a cute, beautiful shell have you concealed! Your faith is sure to turn an intellectual epidemic, if not a pandemic. Matters that digest on certain brains wont even crawl near to innocent contexts of simple stories. Naturally unnatural are such instances of life. I am sure to read and write again. pls allow me another reading. Regards (Report) Reply

    Fantastic poem Valsa. I might have read more than once to get its proper meaning. Here on the earth, he is uncrowned king and legal heir to amass wealth.But at the last where he stands? It's true many of them don't think about that..Its often seems that death is too far away from their view..loved the way you presented it. (Report) Reply

    But where is his tribe and isn`t he often standing alone? Poor man. We have no magical power to stop his aging and If he is going to be rewarded with the celestial glee later, deep down in his mind he will remain sad like Oscar Wilde`s [un]happy prince! Who will rescue him then? The Designer cannot see that angle.
    The poem scores high in language used and format applied. (Report) Reply
