Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

As a wanderer upon this earth (Terzanelle)


Far from the place of my birth
life has driven me
as a wanderer upon this earth

never truly to be free
to another shore
life has driven me

far from the one that I adore
to breath corrupted air
to another shore

where death waits prowling everywhere,
stalking like a wild animal snarling
to breath corrupted air,

far from my home and you my darling
seeking the answers to life
stalking like a wild animal snarling

I am now free from man and wife,
far from the place of my birth
seeking the answers to life,
as a wanderer upon this earth.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
