Treasure Island

Marck Riggins


Seated at Day's Edge


I took my seat at day's edge,
Where night would turn sun off,
Soon stars come out in silent shout,
With moon's amber aloft.

In hope to cope and seize such days,
through pallid waves from black,
I stood to hold such moments known,
prayed Time returned friends back.

The glow of youth has faded long,
ahead my days unsure.
I know a love, whose hands above,
framed worlds unknown, yet pure...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
