Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

Add A Silver Rose

Casual day, money for the disabled, with a new theme:
‘Going Big’, prepared a hat, wide brim, flowers in silver
and white, earrings, glass jewellery, sequins and glitter,
monochrome - studied Ascot pictures from My Fair Lady
and added a purple flower

But my eyes without makeup spoil the idea of good taste,
bought a mask – fulfilling my dream of taking part in a
masquerade; hat pulled low over the mask in purple and
gold, the look was just right, the big bunch of silver flowers
threatening to slide off

Add a silver rose and I look smart – yet casual day without
a get-together meant I had to run from floor 1 to floor 10 to
meet up with all my friends, made some new friends today
everybody loved the confection on my head, a background
for my golden mask - sitting still at my desk was

Absolutely impossible….

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
