Treasure Island

My Lover’s Physique


My lover’s physique is youthful
like a tender sprout leaf!

While she smiles,
her teeth look like pearls!

Her body smells
with a nice fragrance!

Her eye paste smeared eyes
look sharp like spears!

Her shoulders
appear to have made of bamboo!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
