Treasure Island

Noah Body


Swan Song


More will celebrate rather then weep
When begins at last the eternal sleep

Many will look with despite then sneer
Hatred and disgust born out of their fear

If only a few should look back and see
I really did try to give the best of me

To reach out and touch was ever my goal
Maybe to be blessed with saving a soul

Repeated mistakes causing other's such pain
Were never my intent and I hope that is plain

If I have changed only one lonely lost life
Gave strength to one to resist the knife

Then all was worthwhile and never a waste
A reason that of life I had just rarely a taste

So if just one thinks of me without disgust
The madness was never a complete bust

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
