Treasure Island

Jesus James Llorico


One Cold Night


'The cold full moon is out tonight
In this harsh winter away from home
As fainted stars hung in dreary sight
With all but gloom as he stood alone

The eerie silence of the winds
That gently blew the resting leaves
As it tears through his breath and skin
In grim stillness and chilly breeze

Though no longer in prime of life
His body has gradually decline
As tiredness is felt from torn and strife
After years of toil down the line

His thoughts carried him to the past
Of lifelong secrets and early love
Fond memories that will never last
That only the heavens knew above

As the rays of moonlight calmly gleams
There is one that blesses his soul
A name spread along the moonbeams
Who has quietly made him whole

For years that they have been apart
His hopes and dreams in silence sealed
She remains the warmth of his heart
In teary times when thoughts are veiled

As the evening falls in memory
The moon now hidden from the clouds
As he walks away and silently
With the dark cold landscape left behind.'

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
