Treasure Island

Daniel Ilyas ilyas


Life


While I nodded, nearly napping
suddenly there came a tapping
as someone suddenly rapping at
my chamber door

Oh, my chamber door
why do you rap at someone suddenly
rapping

I crawling slow and below
to where the long road
bent to the underground

Two roads offered,
diverged

He,
who once knocked
at my chamber door

Told me so,
to take the shortcut road

Advised me,
that ugly fool
also introduced him
as the Old Scratched


Pushing, he laughs away,
And up I go,
And down I go,
The seat creaks ominously,
The rope begins to fray,
Rubbing against a bough.


Eyes and wings and souls of black

The very essence of true beauty

To bring the chaotic era back

Is their one and only duty,

that is he,
who my chamber meat.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Be careful, cause the Devil will offer wrong. And you will pay for it at the beginning or at the end. So watch who enters your chamber door.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
