Treasure Island

Shahida Latif


A mysterious whisper


One wintry cold midnight I abased,
Amid the ruins,
The moonlight impinged,
On features of the scattered objects,
Wrapped in silences;
While engrossed I was in profound thoughts,
A mysterious whisper I happened to listen,
“Have men changed their olden route? ”

'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
