Treasure Island

Suzette Richards

(Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA)

Breeze


Softly it touches my cheeks
Of vague promises it reeks
Drowning out the daily din
Memories softly crowd in
A feather in the bird's beak

I inhale love which abounds
The abundance which astounds
Apportioning each his share
For others we dearly care
Compassion is all that counts

Welcome breeze of change caress
Putting aside all our stress
Embracing friendship offered
A haven of love proffered
Without you, my life would be less

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
