Treasure Island

Maria C. Costa

(Portugal)

A Gesture of Love


From dawn till dusk
They are compliant
With every principle and task.
They are humble, obedient,
Sustaining the whole Being
Through prayers so divine
Accompanied by fasting
Due to break at sunset time.
O Lord, how they love YOU
And recognise Your Mercy,
Your Grace, too.
May You grant them all
Much strength, joy, peace
To follow such Light in bliss!

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
