Treasure Island

Edwina Reizer

(12/22/1937 / LAKEWOOD, NJ)

The Pearly Gate


What will happen
If I say I won’t wait?
Will you find me
at the Pearly Gate
and walk with me to Eden?

For the day will come
when we must part
But never the touch,
never the heart
And if Eden is
a Garden dear,
then you and I
have nothing to fear.

We’ll plant little blue
Forget Me Nots
and tend them
on each new day.
We’ll decorate
the Pearly Gates
for lovers who will
pass our way.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
