Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Duty, deputy!


The woman!
To go to her great city;
Love!
With the mind which has wisdom;
Duty, deputy!
With the sweet muse of life that breeds love to unite us togther.

Love!
To sleep like a king in your arms;
View, preview!
And, with the visions of enough gold to play with.

Love,
Of the aroma;
Gathered together with the muse of humility and passion,
In the land of beautiful roses.

Love!
To sleep like a queen in your arms;
And, with the attributes of the muse of life,
Bring peace and gladness.

Life!
With the muse of the aroma of sweet love;
In the great city of this woman,
Sharing in peace and joy.
View, preview, review!
Along the muse of life.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
