Treasure Island

I Have Learnt To Live


it took late a bit.
from whom it
doesnt matter much.

now i know,
what is happiness & sorrow.
both are moments' guest,
neither they stop nor rest.

life is coloured by these two,
life smiles and frowns too.
that is it, that is it.
i have learnt to live late a bit.

    I like the smart, clever way you arranged your phrases, and how they all work together to make one point. You kept to your subject very well. And it's about a great life lesson. (Report) Reply

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.
