Treasure Island

Thought or Romance


Mama's world is different than papa's
Hers is romance
His is thought;
Thought and romance
Which do I prefer?
I prefer mama's world,
Tears
Joy
Passion
Love;
A kaleidoscope of hearts,
A diversity of human expression;
Children play
Adults kiss
Old men stroke the beard gently;
Even the sun
Is not harsh,
Casting as it does
Warm glistening showers and
Not the harsh passion of
Dreary
Pondering.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
