Treasure Island

Christopher Moore


Tremors


Underneath the pain
In a Country by your side
Underneath the suffering
That so many sleep to hide

Underneath the tremors
There's no Mother for a child
Underneath the rubble
Is what's left of broken smiles

Underneath the bridge
Is a man without a home
Underneath the moonlight
There's a child who cries alone

Underneath the remnants
Where children played without a fear
Underneath the blanket
An infant clings to life so dear

Underneath the tragedy
It's up to us to make a start
Underneath the grief
A chance to unbreak someones heart

Underneath the dreams
That were shattered in a glance
Underneath the ruins
Is help to build a second chance

Underneath the sun
Where lovers long to sail away
Underneath the gray sky
A child survives another day

Underneath disaster
Is a longing to reach out
Underneath this calling
Desire burns through all self doubt

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
