Treasure Island

Every Boy Dreams


Every boy dreams of being brave
A chance to rescue the girl in need;
While manhood's dreams oft cast him the knave,
With choices ruled by his lust and greed.
And weakened thus by such dark foes,
Accused and stumbling on he goes,
Bowing his head, resisting dreams-
'Tis easier far to kill the spark,
And though she longs for him to lead,
He forfeits courage to have a lark,
A selfish quest, alas, short-lived
For the girl, the boy has naught to give.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
