Treasure Island

Vera Sidhwa


Wall


I hit my head against it,
For I failed my science exam.
I leaned my body against it,
From the exhaustion of doing so.


I bounded my fist on it,
And wondered why I did.
I sighed in front of it.
But it didn't matter.


For it didn't matter what I did.


But at least this wall,
Was my friend,
For whatever I did to it,
It let me.

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
