Treasure Island

Stars


I always wonder how far away you really are,
whether if your still burning with intense heat,
or just a calm luminance glow from your previous being.

You always keep me reaching towars the dark night sky for something more,
I can stay awake for hours trying to count all of you with you wonderful glow,
You can be as guiding ans helpful as the North Star,
or as blinding and brutal as our sun.

You dot the night sky some large, some small.
You paint images in the sky such as The Big Dipper or Orians Belt.
You reach out through the endless distance of space,
But no matter how close or how far,
there will neer be as many as you,
the star

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
