Treasure Island

A Flight of Fantasy


Have you ever wanted to cut blue from the sky
or reach out and touch the moon
Have you never felt the tropical heat
or watched a myriad of colour in a sheltered lagoon
When did you last pit your strength against a dragonfly
to rid her of her gossamer wing
or raced a swallow on a Summer's eve
to the land of eternal Spring

In asses milk you would love to bathe
to relax on a feathery cloud
and follow the sun over hill and dale
until a mountain becomes its shroud

Have you swum a river's course
or felt the depth of a lake
Have you warmed an icy wind
or shed a tear for the gentle snowflake
It is not too late to lose yourself
in a kaleidoscope of thought
perchance to find peace of mind
or be snared by life and truly caught.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
