Treasure Island

Patti Masterman


Watch-Ghost


Imagine the ghost I would become,
The ghost that's yet to be,
While my body sleeps the sleep
Of death- yet I am free.

Imagine eyes, that watch the dawn
Un-cumbered by the frame
That bore, close to a century-
But no more claims a name.

Imagine loving presence guards
The living flesh of one,
Who once upon the earth had forged
A bond: in blood was done.

Imagine me with you always,
More than ever before;
No counterfeit of life or death
Can ever close that door.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
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;
