Treasure Island

Michael Hopkins

Within This World Of Man

Do not fear

These days of darkness

When nations

Rival for control

Of resources

Economic markets


The minds of mankind

All will fail

For they have chosen

The path of failure

Devoid of Light

Devoid of Love

An end to thir archaic systems

Is soon at hand

Hope springs from a Land to the East

A New way of living

A respect for each other

Reason returns

In time

Love will once again

Rule upon the Land


Amongst the nations

A new renaissance

New creations

Man aligns again

With the Earth


The Stars

Heaven and Earth rejoice


Man has returned

As a


A cooperator

A co-creator

In the building

Of human community

Such structures of beauty

Shall arise

From the ashes of the old ways

A new community

Will evolve

All will be heard

All will decide

In its building


Once again

Man realigns

With the rhythms of Life

And begins again

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
