Treasure Island

The We in Me


Idle musings,

here I stare

At the wall right over there

“With no paintings? ”

Yes, it's bare!



Any way, how do you fare?

“I am well, ”

My friend,

My only friend!

“You're talking to myself again”



Scary nightmares,

now I wake and I lie in bed and shake

“Oh, calm down! ” Give me a break!

It's your fault – the noise you make!



“I am you, ”

My friend!

“My only friend! ”

I'm talking to yourself again



Murder? Murder? No - I'm framed!

Hear that voice? The voice I blame!

“They can't hear me.”

What a shame I do not think I like this game



“I am sad, ”

My friend,

My only friend,

“We got me in trouble again”

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
