Treasure Island

The Lord of Stripes


In my dreams
I take the paws
Of a lonely tiger
And together we dance

My love, I’ll find you
Ablaze in a funeral pyre

We swim together
The tiger and I
Through cities
Made of emerald

My love, I’ll find you
Ablaze in a funeral pyre

Lions watch jealously
As the king of the jungle
Is passed over
For the lord of the dance

My love, I’ll wait for you
Ablaze in a funeral pyre.

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,
