Tranquility


I sit high in this tree
In complete tranquility

This bed of ropes
I tied with hopes
That I could find
A state of mind
In this tree
Of tranquility

My frustrated soul
Searching for its goal
Climbing the ropes oh life
Past the knots of strife
In this tree
Of tranquility

I sit here now
Sweat on my brow
Looking into the sky
This is how I fly
In this tree
Of tranquility

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
