Treasure Island

Dave Tanguay

(Nov.8,1948 / Westbrook, maine)

A thought to begin each day (poem)


As you go about each day
Take some time to laugh and play
Sing a song and tell some jokes
Share a tale and be kind to folks
Learn a little and care a lot
Don’t be envious of what others got
Love your parents and sister too
And the life you lead will be good to you

    Well, this little poem really says a lot. I truly do love my Mom and my sister, but I've always thought my sister was the favourite, well she is. I just have to get over it. Isn't this rediculous at my age. Silly me. I love this poem, it makes one think about their selfish thoughts. Hmmmmm (Excellent poem Dave) (Report) Reply

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.
