Treasure Island

Cassandra Jasmine

(United States of Awesomeness)

Far Away


When days were short,
Nights were long.
A weary man
Traveled far from home.

Once,
He sat upon his mattress at night,
Gazing at the bright, round moon.

Cold nights glazed the world with frost,
Bringing a natural beauty to the land.

Deep in thought,
The man raised his head
To gaze at the fair moon,

As he thought of his beloved family,
At home.
His ancestors, who help him
Find his path.

    A nice poem, a nice theme.
    As he thought of his beloved family,
    At home.
    His ancestors, who help him
    Find his path.
    It's so nice to pause for a moment and thankfully think of our ancestors who showed us the way through generations! Well done. Well written. (Report) Reply

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.
