Treasure Island

Gloria Seseng

(1977 November 18 / NW South Africa)

Ageless


A precious twinset shell souvenir
Has unfolded a cast
of letters from the alphabet ranking
To lay down a perfect whisper
on the way to say‘I thank you’
For you ceased a sister
from an endless mirror!
...that had looked like
a snail with a huge sinister trunk
sprawling to moving closer!
And for you my dear,
being grateful is entirely ageless!

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,
