Treasure Island

Stanley Cooper

(August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Throwing The Bull

The astronaut heading for outer space
Past the Man in the Moons sun-lit face
Won’t have time to give it a wink
He’ll be past the moon before he can blink

That famous cow who jumped over the moon
To hitch a ride would be most opportune
For this space-ship was headed this moon-lit day
Where most cows could excel, The Milky Way

But the cow got no offer to ride on this trip
There wasn’t room on this crowded space-ship
The passenger section was totally full
With a creatures expert at throwing the bull

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,
