Treasure Island

Jessie Hopkins

(9/23/94 / Missouri, United States)

Water


Water is life.
Water flows through Earth's veins.
Water is mysterious and dangerous.
Water transports us to the vast unknown.
Tower of water sliced by surfer's board.
Children fire water pistols,
and others dive into watery depths.
Hummingbirds fly through water sprinklers,
and robins bathe in water fountains.
Water darkens the sky.
Water whitens the cold, frozen ground.
White water rapids dump unexpecting people into the river.
Water washes away the land.
Water preserves a soldier's tomb.
Water saves a thirsty travler's life.
Waterfalls create rainbows.
People scream in excitement on water rides,
and laugh while throwing water balloons.
Water is within our very being.
Water is life.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
