Treasure Island

White


There's a day,
You'll see,
All that I aspire to be,

Come whatever may,
I'll soar high,
I'll be free,

Despite all the things you say,
Joyous as a song bird,
Lively as a bee,

My head I will not lay,
I will be happy,
I will have glee,

In a life you simply can't portray,
For you are dark,
And I am light,

And though filled with your dismay,
You cannot blacken me,
I'm white.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
