Treasure Island

Fiona Davidson

(From beyond time)

Autumn Dreaming

Trees drip rivers of colour from branches
Bared towards the granite skies above me
Reds and golds float freely to the ground
Forming a carpet so rich beneath my feet

Autumn walks through the wooded vales
Reveal the beauty of this planet we live on
As we watch the seasons turn and take us
We are back in primeval years of evolution

In our minds the rawness makes us alive
Breathing the salty tang of seas eternal
The never ending crash upon our shores
Reminding of its power over our lives

A smile appears as I look out to horizons
I once believed were lost in misty times

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
