Treasure Island

Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

(Baltimore, Maryland)

A Secret


They tease
And wonder
Why I am smiling so
And humming happy tunes under my breath
And why the strut's back in my walk...
But I won't tell them
Because if I do
Everyone would want
A little piece of this heaven too.
So I'll just keep right on smiling
And struting
And humming happy tunes under my breath
And keeping you a secret all to myself!

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
