Treasure Island

Matt Mondschein

(3/16/60 / Macungie, PA.)

Take a Brief Moment


Take a break
In the action of a simple day
Thank the one who loves us
Anyway

We talk and walk a good game
Love each other, no matter what
For he would and will do the same
It's all he loves
No matter what your name

Pause for a second, the reason we live
So much to offer
Our lives
As brief as they are
Our souls we must give

Give with your heart
Mind, body, and soul
Our bodies old and weary
With our faith
Upstairs we will go

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.
