Treasure Island

Sunset On The River


Sunset On The River

Sunset on the river
I ate salad and enjoyed the view
Of soft summer breezes
And my conversations with you

Tomorrow will be sunny
With temperatures that delight
In the evening we'll dine on our deck
And welcome in the night

Sunset on the river
Makes the end of a hot day seem fine
Especially knowing that tonight
We'll sleep with our arms entwined

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
