Treasure Island

Bella Ravenstar

(Southern California)

Feast


Upon life's table
I've been fed scraps
So little to devour
Almost starving to death
Longing for abundant meals
When I sat upon the table of my lover
I found barely more
Crumbs and scraps
Still ravenous
I ran from his table
I was looking for nourishment
My stomach howling
Hungrier than before
Then I found
A large table
Lined with meats
Jellies
Fruits
Candies
Cakes
Jams
Stews
Pies
A marvelous feast
It was the table of my father and my brother
They prepared this banquet for me
Delighted
I feasted
Devouring every bite
I feasted forever
Never hungry again
Thankful for this divine feast
I shall never roam again

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
