Treasure Island

derrick foster

(8/6/1969 / arkansas)


What is it
When is it
How is it


What was it
When was it
How was it


Where can it be
It worries me
When it's almost up


Tick tick tick
Tock tock tock
Hear the sound of it

Slow it down
Bring it round
On the town


Is it the end
To meet a friend
On the mend


What will it be
When will it be
How will it be


Into it
Around it
Out of it

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
