Treasure Island

DAVID GERARDINO

(9/19/1963)

SUN LIGHT HITS THE WATER.....


SLACK tides, smooth edges,
metal eyelets, drifting
in the cold snow.
MAN overboard,
man overboard,
CLIFFS and rocks, pitch
and plunge, a drum getting
louder, as you stagger off.
MAN overboard,
man overboard,
DEPTHS and weights,
ghost and saints.
a child waiting for
his father to love
him, as his son.
MAN overboard,
man overboard.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

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