Treasure Island

Liilia Talts Morrison

(August 20,1937 / Estonia)

Craggy Knolls


I chose the path of craggy knolls
According to my light
My basket brimmed with simple fare
Eyes fixed on skies' delight

I chose the path of craggy knolls
According to my light
My sun-baked feet would often bleed
Skin marked by insect bites

I chose the path of craggy knolls
According to my light
Unknown to roads on higher ground
Where strong men loved to fight

I chose the path of craggy knolls
According to my light
How often was my larder bare
Sparse fields a sea of blight

I chose the path of craggy knolls
According to my light
I noted glow worms signal codes
Which answers might invite

I chose the path of craggy knolls
According to my light
In search of faith's eternal flame
God could for me ignite.
