Treasure Island

Liilia Talts Morrison

(August 20,1937 / Estonia)

There Comes A Time


There comes a time to take a look
At moments that were painful then
Raw times of wrongs and prejudice
When helpless victims cried in vain.

There comes a time, a safer one
Stark agonies and violence
Too overwhelming in those years
By time's kind fingers gently heal.

There comes a time those little ones
Are softly carried to their fate
Where angels and the just alone
Rejoice in bright eternity.

There comes a time those left on earth
Eyewitness to atrocities
Can finally recall, relive
Pale moments much too hard to bear.

There comes a time, it's here at last
When poems from a hot hand flow
To soothe harsh reminiscences
That only wails can coax to view.

There comes a time all injured ones
Are vindicated, lives renewed
Offending earthly pangs and woe
Much-glorified in mansions gold.

The time has come take a look
At moments that were painful then
Raw times of wrongs and prejudice
When helpless victims cried in vain.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
