Treasure Island

' The Apotheosis '

I look at the constellation of stars at night
like in so many nights, in the shadow
where I have the nicest sight...
sitting under the tree in the meadow...
so wonderful; beautiful to see,
yet forbidden; untouched by me.

They're like the sea in the sunset; luminous,
like sparkling sapphire scattered in millions...
no matter how strong the storms whirled
they're always there together; undeterred,
radiating guiding lights,
from with in their tremendous flights.

You are like them...
so very far, but precious...
one, that I've always love and dreamed
Unreachable; intellectually auspicious...
a treasure to be treasured,
In my heart forever I adored...

You are like the moon,
which I've yearned to come soon...
and shower my lonely heart and soul,
wrap my naked body like a silk shawl,
with your blazing glory of moonlight,
until I shivered.. and sighed... with great delight.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
