Treasure Island

Denis Martindale


Please, Write Something!


Write something that touches your heart,
Then share it and touch another heart,
That heart can share it with another heart
And that's just a part of the start...
How wonderful if it's a precious love poem,
Meant to inspire millions every single day,
Something nice and simple to memorise,
Or so profound it becomes unforgettable...
And if it should challenge some lonesome soul,
To stand up and stand tall and face life anew,
Then that's how poetry should serve humanity,
Not always with a winsome twinkle in the eye,
Not always with a playful and cheeky grin,
But always meant to touch the human heart,
To nurture all the wonders that ever were,
To grant them a refreshment once again,
Something delicate or fine, brilliant or bold,
Something that's thought special, good as gold...
Yes, something that's thought special... good as gold...

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
