Treasure Island

John May

(June 24th,1971 / New Jersey)

There's...


I

An angel on my right, my girl
A maple's airy symphony
The scram'bling of a nervous squirrel
And breezes blushing quietly

II

A solitary Aspen tree
Whose leaves suspect that fall is near
A cloudless sky (a lifted sea)
And semi-silence everywhere

III

The coming end of summer fair
The distant call of lonely crows
The rocking of this metal chair
As stanzas three come to a close

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost
