Treasure Island

yihuai ying


child


child do everything for the family
looking after sisters and cooking meal
though she understands enough of the competition
grows up day by day
one day she realised she can take more and more
of the others

child is mischievous, bad in behaviors and hurt around
like a spreading disease, with bad teeth
smells smoky, poxes running on face
willful in the way whatever he does, aggressive
capricious to forgive and forget, every unhappiness

but a child isn't poisonous
you can kiss

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