Treasure Island

Zoe Elsworth

(May 1989 / Sydney)

Angel's Light


Wind like hands upon my skin
Softest touch that’s ever been
With closing eyes I fall from grace
To wake in this unfathomed place

Glaring eyes flooded with doubt
Can no one hear my frantic shout?
This empty road with diminished light
Is where I fell that distant night

I had been chosen to be brave
There’s night to light and lives to save
A fallen tear for what I knew
The life I bid a fair adieu

Down the winding road I went
With Heaven now to represent
The distant stars now shining bright
To guide my journey that dark night

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
