Treasure Island

Dancing Storms


Pity those who play life safe
And never feel the rain
To feel alive it must be said
Sometimes you risketh pain

For life’s a gift for those who dare
To roll the game of dice
And when you win at game of life
It’s more than twice as nice

But if you shelter from the storms
And hide beneath the trees
You'll never know the bliss that is
That brings you to your knees

I want to feel cold wind on cheek
And jump on every swing
Running through wet fountain’s peak
That maketh this heart sing

Not play the game that’s safe and sound
A life that doth conform
I want to see the world spin round
Hold hands and skip in storms
