Treasure Island

Michael Shepherd

0012 summer e e cummings in


said rilke
god needs us too

people celebrate spring
spring celebrates people

parks enjoy children
gardens care for gardeners

flowers bless the showers
eggs make birds

flowers choose their pickers
new dresses look for girls

kites drag children
love looks for lovers

and merry is all

with a ho and a hey
for this jolly today
tomorrow will be
yesterday

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
