Treasure Island

Patricia Grantham

(May 27,1952 / Moncks Corner, South Carolina)

A Treasure Chest


I searched for many treasures that reminded me of you
Your precious heart of gold and your radiant smile too

Saw the grace of your steps as you strolled into a room
Walking like you did when I was the bride and you the groom

Looked for you out the window when the rain started to fall
Listening so intently for it seemed that I heard you call

Stared at your footprints that you left behind in the snow
Watched you shake and shivered as cold winds began to blow

Gazed at the glint in your eyes as you peered up to the sun
Looked at hands so rugged having toiled until the day is done

A lovely treasure you are to me and yes a whole lot more
A precious jewel waiting ever at the threshold to the door

    Like your 'precious jewel waiting ever at the threshold to the door', this poem itself will stand the test of time as a treasure for the readers. It is so wonderfully worded, coming straight from the heart, it's really amazing! It deserves 10/10.
    I enjoy reading your poems. May your pen or keyboard continue to produce such jewels as this for a long time to come! (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
