Treasure Island

Alphabet Ode


Twenty-six characters, worthy of marriage.
Enlightened factors, ignorance embarrassed.

Managed to summarize the ways and means
of our loves while keeping us entertained.

Taken for granted, parents of languages,
ours, others. Legitimizes laments.

Essayist, becoming saviors with their appraisals
Bless us vestibules of verses

Still treasure, thus value, captivity's comfort
'Savages' sounding so eloquently triumph.

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
