Treasure Island

Lynne FincherSpringarden


Gift for Leueen


This child of dreams
Found granting the blessing of her company,
not to the exalted, , who want for nothing,
but among those laid low and hard pressed.

It was easy..she met me here,
Her path cleared by the west wind
No need for the sun, she carries her own light...
an ember she plants in your breast that warms with time

Run, tell the King!
Ah, I thought at first he had ruined me with an impossible task!
'Go, find for me the fairest', he said
Why is it Kings
Say such things?

But I laid my heart close to the ground
and listened to the earth mother whisper,
'You will know her by a sign that you don't understand,
and a face you cannot see'

and how could I have guessed,
How was I to know,
that I would be so blessed
'neath the Rose and the Halo.

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;
