Treasure Island

The Sweet Lass-Chandrakanta


The Magnetic Moon,
Is she aptly named;
For her innocent smile
In ICF she's famed.

Like a lovely creeper
Swaying in the breeze;
She is pretty sweeter,
For one's heart does squeeze,

The dark flowing tresses
In one long plait,
Swinging to and fro
With her swan-like gait:

Adorned with an aster
In all it's bloom;
She is sure an angel,
Dispelling all gloom.

Like a new bride
Clinging to her spouse,
The pretty flower
From her own house—

Kissing her silken locks
And smiling with pride;
It is enhanced in beauty,
Tucking in at her side.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
