Treasure Island

Beginning And End


Raining that morning was.
Huge, black clouds covered the sky.
But there it sat,
in the tree in front,
a beautiful black cat.
And then said I
why do they say bad luck
from this creature of nature
that shall never make you cry?
And why do they fear its presence
when its eyes beautifully shine?
Instead, the other side should tell
and cover the black cat.

Then saw I the wind passing by,
racing through the skies.
And then thought I
why do they say this force
will fly and drive you mad?
And why do they hate its presence
and wish instead for the shining sun?
Instead, the darkened side should tell
and cover the blowing shall.

Then above looked I
and the night governed the sky.
And then thought I
why do they say comes fear
behind those beautiful stars?
And why do they fear that presence,
when it only provides peace
trying to make us relax
and give us time for sleep?

And then grabbed I the cat,
the wind looked at,
passing with so much force through the black sky.
And then thought I
why do they say bad about you,
you who only pass by?
And what if by an accident
you seem to strike too hard?
What if you take me away?
I would not care, I would not care
though everything in life
has a beginning and an end.

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.
