Treasure Island

Margaret Alice

(The Crystal Age / Pretoria - South Africa)

Delighted, Delirious! 22.09.09


The house is in good taste except
next to my bed, a water hyacinth
and white flowers, a riot of pink
a little doll, glittering fairy
wings in a purple hue

Books and pictures of fairies
stuffed animals, sea-shells on
a string, a shiny butterfly, purple
beads, no-one can take my kitsch
away

No-one can criticise my taste in
my room, I am rich when I look
at my treasures, as precious as
beautiful thoughts, my production
sheet was correct

For the first time ever - I am
so glad, so delighted
so delirious!

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
