Treasure Island

G.R. Gaus

(April 11 1950 / St. Louis)

Along The Way


Is there one living soul on earth?
Or ever has there been?
Untouched by persecution?
Free from guilt and sin?

Worry ne'er reached the mind?
Oppression stood its ground?
No reason e're to be distressed?
A life, of simplicity unbound.

Wishing I could meet this one,
Ask of the question how,
Escaping all life's failures,
With words, I dare avow.

Oh somewhere in the distance,
Buried deep there lay a plan,
Long forgotten along the way,
Common Ground for all of man.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
