Treasure Island

WORDS


Words show me brightest of lights
Words show me darkest of nights

Words make tender my heart
Words tear my heart apart

Words make me without wings fly
Words make me break down and cry

Words make me build castles in the air
Words throw me into the world of despair

Words water my sweet dreams
Words dry my ambition’s streams

Words can heal the wound of swords
Words cannot heal the wound of words

Words are so powerful
Words are so wonderful

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.
