Treasure Island

Walter C. Edwards


The Old Man


The old man you held to,
threw out the winter,
is just yesterdays news,
spring has sprung different winds,
just as you lips have gone on,
to kiss a younger ones tongue,
and venchers to new paths,
that sing only to you,
it is now time I say ado,
but I still, will love you.

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,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
