Treasure Island

Rachel Nichols


....my love, mi amore


it was the most beautiful of days
when sunprincess strolls into the garden
to meet and conversate with her father
the king of the exquisite land of dreams

in this garden the birds chirp happily
soft sunlight streams through the trees
sweet cherry blossoms cover the ground
butterflies discover jasmine and lilies
have all bloomed, so beautifully and nicely
and the fragrance of these pretty blossoms
is like the sweetest of all exotic perfumes
and in planning of all things to be perfect
down to the very last detail, meticulously
the king is one who believes in perfection
only the best and magnificent will ever do

cause the king is thinking of marriage
for his princess he wants the one prince
who is perfect, and he knows of only one
yet he wishes for her happiness only
and he thought how could he arrange this
if this were to make her so very unhappy
he poses a question to his lovely daughter
sunprincess love, remember the prince
from our visit to the isle of unicorns
he is the most perfect prince in the land
he would make a great addition to our family
unless of course, there is a another prince
one who has captured your attention

yes father, there is one I absolutely adore
to me he means everything and more
my love is for only one, mi amore

    seems the father - King is very much concerned of his daughter love life but he doesn't take control. He freely gave her daughter the mind to think and to choose the person she truly loves. I love this poem. (Report) Reply

    What a vivid dream you've shared Rachel :) And yes, conversate (intransitive verb) is a word. Converse is just used more in certain areas. (Report) Reply

    I love the poem. Very well written. However, conversate in not a word. Converse is correct. (Report) Reply

    ...yes conversate is a word.....study * word formation *.....words are formed from * several different methods *....here is an example of one method * blending * an example is * smog *....which is a blend of smoke and fog....another example is * conversion * changing a non-verb to a verb....an example is mail......yes new words are coming to life everyday...since the birth of the first man and woman.....I wish you the best of luck with your studying of language development...

    This is truly a beautiful expression of love - masterful words and story and resonates within my soul. Thanks so much for sharing. Can't wait to read more of your work. (Report) Reply

    This was so heartfelt and revealing that it held my interest for the entire time, there is an interesting concept about your work, were your able to reuse themes and imagery making all your poems feel like one long story created with shorting chapters. I especially like the second long body paragraph describing the kings desire for the princess to have the prince he wants, only the Sunprinces can choose the prince that makes her shine. Thank you (Report) Reply

    If you allow me, for the last verse I'd write mi amore, which is italian... in french it is mon amour. The italian way makes it rhyme... more and amore. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

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.
