Treasure Island

Sallie Howson


Goodbye


I will not visit art galleries
With you in mind.
Buying books
And postcards
In order to
Share the beauty
With you.

I will not fix scenes in my head
Remembering every detail
Of trees blossoming,
Birds flying,
People interacting.
Ready to relate it
To you.

I will not write poetry
Revealing my private thoughts
And inner feelings.
Knowing every word
Will be
Lapped up
By you.

I will not intrude on your depression
And solitude,
Searching out
Touching scriptures,
Encouraging words,
And loving thoughts
For you.

No,
No more.
I will cancel you from my life
Just as thoroughly
As you
Have cancelled me
From yours.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
