Treasure Island

The Hub Of Humanity

It is a place where plans are hatched,
Jokes are told and couples are matched.

It is a place to share your news,
Exchange a smile and discuss your views.

It is a place to share your ideas,
Give advice – have a coffee or beer.

It is a place to wine and dine,
Or sit outside if the weather is fine.

It is a place which draws folk together,
And gives them shelter whatever the weather.

It is a place to savour new tastes,
Meet with friends or greet a new face.

It is a place for conversations,
Bon voyages and celebrations.

It is the perfect place for a date,
And a great place to meet your mate.

It is a place to sit and think -
To ponder life and enjoy a drink.

It is a place with real humanity –
Life and laughter, with a dash of insanity.

A crucial linchpin - a real social hub.
A community hotspot, known as a pub.

So take your eyes off your iPhone screen,
And come down and join the social scene.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
