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

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
