Treasure Island

mohamad tabatabai


Ecstasy


I saw a drunken man on the farthest land
Where the taverns of ecstasy come to stand
He bent right and left like untied ship
Whom the jealous sober would come to grip
Were are you from, I ventured ask
No where, he said, with little task
He continued:
Half of mud I am and half of soul
One part so good, one part foul
One part of sea, other of land
One part jewel, one part sand
Befriend me, I said, for so close we are
No difference, he said, close or far
Wanderer I am, have lot to say
Will you listen, don't go away
It's love I seek, have no demand
That's all I want, you understand?

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
