Treasure Island

Gerry Legister

(21/01/66 / Silver Spring, Westmorland, Jamaica)


Poetry is the gift of simple things
Symbols we take in life for granted,
Summer days flow into gentle springs,
By the realm of nature time had invented.

Like the sprawling wave of sea breeze
We embrace a light in the morning mist,
Poignant stars going down softly with ease
And a refreshing kiss our lips can't resist.

Its poetry from the heart through the eyes
We mortals see lively picturesque scene,
Of difficult times becoming our dreams
Relish in happier moments the vision seen.

Emotions of felicity soften with fresh tears
The love and loss, of values found again,
Emotive qualities that go beyond our years
Wonderful words reminiscent of the pain.

Its poetry that you treasure and embrace,
The language of love makes us laugh and live;
Engage the nectar of taste beauty and grace,
A gift from our hearts to others we give

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
