Treasure Island

Iris Mista

(Bolsward)

For all those who are broken


For all those who are broken
no matter by what token
this is where it goes wrong
the outflow grows too strong

Without the nature of ebb and flood
a flow in only one course
the need to share but there is no force
that makes the lively water return
to cool down and cherish the burn
caused by the flames of the inner sway
and necessity for all the love to flow away

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
