Treasure Island

Darlene Walsh

(1994 / Philadelphia)

Angels Weeping


Angels weeping in the night
People looking on in fright
Tears falling at the sight
In torn hearts does pain smite

In chairs sit with shoulders tight
In the book more do write
As tears fall on pages white
Then Gods prayers they all recite

In life she was so polite
Every day she had more height
Sparkling eyes were oh so bright
Every moment was true delite

For five years only did she excite
In her frame was mortal blight
Dispite the soul of a sprite
But at last she lost the fight

In the morning was deaths invite
Yesturday her soul took flight
And then her soul gone from site
Now in her eyes is no light

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
