Treasure Island

Benny John


surprise


It’s amazing to realise
That I can still surprise myself
It’s amazing to realise
That I know myself so little yet

It’s amazing to be able to laugh
With the child whom I had left
stranded in the courtyard
of age

It’s amazing to be able to cry
With the fool I had
One day so encouragingly
Pushed me on

It’s amazing to be able to love
With the young man who just yesterday
Had told me
It’s okay.

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,
