Treasure Island

Jeffrey Markle


Tomorrow


As I stood at the edge of tomorrow
I gazed longingly back to yesterday
A day i could take solace in
Fo tomorrow is a vast unknown

Yet today was once a tomorrow
has proven itself so
The surprises, the pitfalls
The lessons learned

Yet I shall embrace yesterday
Learn from today
And with all my being
Challenge all my tomorrows

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
