Treasure Island

To My Daughters


to my beautiful baby girls
given to me by mother earth
you are more precious
than diamonds and pearls

ive heard
that the earth
rejoiced at my daughters birth
ive given her what she deserved
and the earth's worth

to trust in me
four babies you see 1) Petrona 2) Jayda 3) Daja 4) Eva
who I love for eternity
the joy I feel
as a daddy you would never believe

when I look into their eyes
when I get to see them smile
these moments last me a lifetime
they will always be mine
until the end of time

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
