Treasure Island

Jinal Oswal

(26/05/1989)

All In Your Eyes


When the room was dark
From somewhere the sun shined bright

When the tap was dry
I saw the waterfall from the window

When the wind was blowing hard
I found a cave and escaped

When the earth shattered the walls
I took shelter under the table

When there was weakness
I earned strength

Let the rain come down
And wash my tears
Feel my soul
And drown my fears

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.
