Treasure Island

Antoinette Kopperfield


You are My Teacher


If I should meet you
on the dusty road of life
Do not despair
for I am your teacher

If you should stumble
while crossing my muddy path
Do not despair
for you are my teacher

If we should cry alone
and falter in hurricane winds
Do not despair
for they are our teachers

If our souls should meet again
with tattered and worn-out shoes
Do not despair
for we have not learned

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,
