Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

The Book of Fate

Sit here and talk to me sweetly, my love,
Like the hummingbird talks to the flowers
To extract the sweet nectar that he so loves
When he visits in the early hours

Hold me tenderly and long, my love,
Like the sun caressing the bower,
While each tender bud is lovingly warmed
'Til it bursts into a full-blown flower

Kiss me strong and deep, my love,
It's your lips that bring life to my soul;
Like the dew that touches the lips of the rose,
And soon after, its beauty unfolds

Always be faithful to me, my love,
Like the dove that cherishes its mate;
We were destined to play these roles -
So it is written in the Book of Fate

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,
