Treasure Island

graham russell

(29-08-1970 / glasgow)

beasts within the dark

the shadows wash over me
as the sun set behind the hills
leaving me adrift in the dark
wondering if they come for me

i hear them growling and snarling
within the dark, promising pain
and hurts yet to start

what are these things within the dark
waiting to tear me apart
filling my mind with fear

these shadows inside the dark
just bracing themselves to leap
and making me weep

these beasts within the dark
just waiting to attack.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
