Treasure Island

Nancy Chambers


A Mini Vacation


Although it had rained all night
By 9 AM it was clear and bright
We did not have a care or worry
Went to ride on the Delafort Ferry
Its flag unfurled in the wind blowing
Off to Pea Patch Island we were going
To visit Fort Delaware
Shaped like a pentagon rather than square
Built to guard the ports of Philly and Wilmington
But never once fired a gun
Used as a Union POW camp
In any weather, it was always damp
Learned some Civil War history
Days gone by no longer a mystery
We enjoyed a very pleasant stay
Tired and happy we ended our day.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
