Treasure Island

mary douglas


There Are Many Rooms


there are many rooms
but only one soul

there are many scenes
on your revolving stage

there is a curtain that
blows in and out
if you cross the room

and open the window
looking for
forgotten consolations

dreams rush in with the wind
everytime and you couldn't explain
to anyone if you were asked:
'...the first dream or the last? '
it's not the sequence you care about

there is your
suspension of belief and then:
the many-tiered music begins again

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
