Treasure Island

Disappointments


Rain and hail,
Peace and war!
Disappointments in life,
With the wickedness of mankind;
Across all borders.
This evil!
Practiced by mankind today;
Destroying each other,
With the weapns of war.
Cross, dross!
To witness against you;
Against mankind,
And, with your acts giving you away!
Before our very eyes.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
