Treasure Island

(1925 / Chicago)

The Chase (Thank you, Carol Rhodes)


Depression chases after
As I run ahead
Away from the blues

As fast as my running shoes
Will take me
Around the corner
Down the road I fly

With the wind behind
And no hills to climb
Depression chases after
Depression chases after
And catches me

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,
