Treasure Island

Leslie Ching

(January 8,1995- / Toronto, ON, Canada)


The three greatest discoveries of humankind:

Melodic hums and trills of instruments
Clear notes of a silver flute
Sharps and highs of a sleek violin
Rumbles and booms of a deep base drum
Squeaks and blares of a golden trumpet;
Smoothed words of voice
Carrying with it the hearts
Of all who listen;

Creamy paints spread across the canvas
In a rich, thick blend of colours
The smeared recreation of the rainbow
Portrayed upon an easel
Peace and tranquillity
Dark and unruly
A fruity candy to the eye
And a craving, longing for the soul;


Appeals to neither
The eye or the ear
But rather to both
And the learned mind
Which can produce
Its own pleasure;
More than just
Breathtaking scenes for the eye
And beautiful sounds for the ear...

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
