Treasure Island


(6-25-39 / STAUNTON, VA)

A Moonlight Night

I sat outside on a moonlight night with stars twinking in the sky
A beautiful dress I wore of silver tears and sparkles
I wished, oh how I wished that life was not so sad
Wished for old dreams to come true again

I sat and sang a song, one from long ago
The words coming one after the other
From my troubled mind, I don't know now how I knew them
But they echoed down the hill and into the valley

I sat and wondered if he heard them
And sometimes dreamed of me
But I knew in my heart he didn't
He was so very far away

The moon went behind a cloud
And the stars stopped their twinkling
My song stopped coming forth
And it begain to rain

Was it rain, was it ice, was it tears that ran down my face
But the moonlight night was gone
And it was bitter cold
My beautiful dress in shatters

My thoughts tumbled and gone
No song I sang from my broken heart
No sentence was complete
For the moonlight night was gone

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
