Treasure Island

Anders Lim


Respect


Respect each peer
Respect each foe more
Attributes stand next to your conscience’s core

Respect each night
Respect each day
Actions reveal your character in every way

Respect each creature
Respect each beast
Trust unveils truth hidden behind nature’s mist

Respect each cloud
Respect each grain of sand
Mercy will offer you her helping hand

Respect each color
Respect each race
Equality speaks only of mercy and grace

Respect each river
Respect each pond
Mother Nature conveys her great wonders and beyond

Walk into each day,
With your heart soaked in hope and joy
As day fades and night endures
Respect will never destroy

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
