Treasure Island

Edge of Decaying


As dreamt on the fringe of light decaying
Mourning the snow falling in rain
Melting in hearts split apart by distance
Joined by voice

Dreaming again, decaying on the pools of paradise
The tropical nature of winter abhorred
Tempting the trees to collapse in pleading
For a colder society and warming needs

A slow remembrance on the edge of decaying
A shallow rejoicing
No longer thin strands to recall
But the visage to behold all yet untold.

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
