Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Choose Stand Tall


Who will stand tall
at appointed trashing table
chosen accounting time?

Who are the strong ones?
I am inherently far stronger
than quitters can choose to be.

I am strong enough to choose.
How I will choose to live.
How I will choose to die.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
