Treasure Island

Liilia Talts Morrison

(August 20,1937 / Estonia)

Their Light


They walk, they talk, they spend the day
according to their light
they fight, they play, they reach great heights
according to their light

They write, they pray, they lose their way
according to their light
they act like fools or are polite
according to their light

They try to win with all their might
according to their light
they all head to that endless night
according to their light

They all do what they think is best
according to their light
until the time comes in the end
to find out what was right.

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,
