Treasure Island

Marilyn Shepperson

(4th September 1949 / Hounslow. Middx)

A Miracle, please


I need a miracle, desperately
Therefore I will pray on bended knee
To whatever omnipotent being
Just might be out there to hear
But fearing deep down inside me
It will not be answered
And knowing all the while
It's no use me promising
That I will do this or that
If the answer should be, ' Yes'
For I know that I'll only forget
Yet still, I do need this miracle
And so, I'll continue to pray
While the flickering flame
Of Hope, keeps burning

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
