Treasure Island

Naveed Akram

(15 December 1973 / London, England)

The Earth Has Promised


The earth shall cry for the forces of time,
An event passes, a world collapses,
This age is against the clock,
This age belongs to us who weep
And craft out habits for the future.

The earth has dined forever in this day,
The floor is dripping with radicals
As the crust of the world shall be roasted
Inside and out by the rivers of lava and magma
That shine wearing their colours.

The earth is so bountiful and beautiful
That love has adorned the generations,
Who they cry for is absurdly to reconnoitre,
Who they are founded on is just that history,
To be enjoyed and trusted like the worldly indulgence.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
