Treasure Island

Adam Zank

(July 13,1991 / Pennock Hospital, Hastings Michigan)

The Silence is Broken!


Solace falls
On wings of
Laughter
Made sadder
By their
Silence

It’s deafening,
This laughter,
Reveling In its own
Absence,

Then laughter
No longer
Crying now
In silence

Tears
Falling
In the
Vertical
Corridors
Of eternity

Never to
Stop.
But then!
Oh joy!
And then,

Like
Silver bells
Ringing
Across a
Deep Void

An angel,
Laughing
Bringing joy
Once more
To the
World.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
