Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Being Unto Myself


Quietly keeping to myself, hiding away from life,
testing my strength at being alone and unto myself.
Enjoying it's serenity, it's beautiful depths within
me; casting out my line, catching all sorts of ideas
to set into poems.
Loving the distance I put between myself and others -
it's a peace of heaven not to hear from anyone else's
jealousy or doubts.

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,
