Treasure Island

Zayne Venilos

(July 11,1993 / Savannah, Georgia)

An Angel Was She


Oh an Angel so sweet
I met one winter day
She lyed a kiss upon my lips
and I begged her to stay

Oh an Angel so beautiful
that I would hope to see her everyday
She left me for another
one more kinder than I

Oh an Angel so honest
that she tried to make amends
Foolish was I, that I shoved her away
Never to see what might have been

An angel, was she
and the devil, was I
she flew away like a bird
while I lay here to die

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
