Treasure Island

Valsa George


Twin Triplets. No.7


MOMENTS

They flash into our midst in a twinkle
To seize them in our hold, as we scrabble,
They glide into eternity like a trickle

ORPHAN

Man and woman in unity begot
Soon in discord forgot
Now a castaway sans either's support

    The triplet regarding Moments and the one regarding Orphan are each in its own way creditable! - The line They glide into eternity like a trickle in the 1st triplet is so attractive-! In the 2nd triplet every orphan is made- a castaway sans either's support is an apt and true statement! ! Lovely too! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
