Treasure Island

vern eaker

(summer of 57 / Illinois U.S.A.)

A trip without a destination


A trip without a destination,
Should be the dream of everyone
It is often my only inclination
Travel the world merely for fun

No schedule to offer restraints
To leave behind all distractions
Enjoying life without complaints
Seeking out unknown attractions

Able to have such freedom is rare
Encumbered by things that are taxing
Family, jobs, and enough money to spare
Exactly the reason we crave relaxing

Still it would be nice to find a way
Visiting mountain tops, or tropical beaches
Ancient ruins or just simply what may
With the whole world within our reaches

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
