Treasure Island

Tsira Gogeshvili

(29.07.1959. / Tbilisi)



In olden times, long before,
A girl ran along the shore,
And sang to the sea a song…

But no one could see
How wondrous were
The songs of the sea.

It made the little girl
Laugh heartily,
She burst into laughter
At that shore…

And the boundless,
The deep blue sea
With laughter
Started to roar…

    Nostalgic but the the soul of the sea and the girl....perhaps the same one as reflected through the writing. Yet they had tied each other with two different identities. Good poem. Lucid but a clean philosophy peeps through its simplicity. A question yet haunts....what does the little girl do now...does she yet laugh with sea's laughter...does she yet sing with the same tune.... Or now she writes poem now! ! ! 10/10

    There's a real e e cummings feel to this Tsira - a sort of musical naivity which is most appealing. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    A girl ran along the shore,
    And sang to the sea a song
    the song goes deeper into the sea heart and awakes a little fish. The girl falls in love with a fish and goes every day there to meet him. one day a sailor kills the fish and offers him to the girl.
    the girl sang the same song seated on a pew, holding the fish. both travelled into the earth's womb. (Report) Reply

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,
