Treasure Island

Allen Steble

(20/04/1987)

Down by the mountain


just one day from each year
just one day with no fear

just one day to be with nature
just one day to be so near

just one day close to the waters
to drink from springs so crystal-clear

just one day so far away-
down by the mountain

just one day under the stars
just one day with no bars

just one day to feel so free
just one day to pay no fee

just one day for me to see
how truly great life can be

just one day so far away-
down by the mountain

just one day when the stars glow
just one day when life seems to flow

just one day in the milk white snow
just one day where the cool breeze blows

just one day that i do not know
to venture where i dream to go

just one day so far away-
down by the mountain

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
