Treasure Island

Janice M Pickett

(Middlesex England)

Starry skies and tear-filled eyes


See them twinkle in the skies
reflecting in my tear-filled eyes
This has been a happy day
yet sadness now comes out to play
With the moon and shining stars
planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars

For with the night and setting sun
comes a time when I am one
alone and left to contemplate
a night alone without a mate
someone to love and someone to hold
Does this mean I am getting old?

Soon the sun will rise on high
the stars no longer in the sky
people laughing, children and play
greet me in a bright new day
Bring me reminders of a life once led
and I am grateful for the day ahead

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?
