Treasure Island


(31/01/1954 / GLASGOW)

A Lover's Thought.

A gentle breast to lay my head, I drift to sleep within my bed
Her skin as soft as petals new, her eyes are as the morning dew
Her flaxen hair 'gainst skin so tender, falls on her shoulders e'er so slender
Gleaming in the moonlight's rays, a handsome lass wi' bonny face.

I would this night fore'er keep, a mortal's dream before I sleep
For she and I are troth to wed, this angel fair within my bed
I spied her first upon the fair, her rose white skin and shining hair
Sitting down by sunlit grass, my heart's set on this bonny lass.

I vowed to make this beauty mine, my deepest wish, our love'd entwine
I think of her within my bed, where'er I am, she's in my head
I make my eyes to wander far, they cannot move, they're fixed on her
An uncouth sight she'll never be, I need this lass to wed to me.

She's fair, as pretty as you'll find, a lady blessed so warm and kind
Her ample breasts beat slow and deep, my bosom pillows as we sleep
A warmth within I never knew, my dear sweet love, my heart's anew,
I gently take her hand in mine and dream our dream of love divine.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
