Treasure Island

vern eaker

(summer of 57 / Illinois U.S.A.)


Amazing how the temperature can vary
In the month of February
Sun is shining heat is climbing
Nearing 53 degrees

Bedroom window allows me the view
Of ice raining down, as the sun shines through
The snow covered ground with sparkling shine
Glistening in contrast with the grey wood line

Carefree squirrels racing tree to tree
Chasing each other in apparent glee
Scampering quickly tails in the air
Oblivious that I see them there

Deer grazing in the foliage abound
Lead by the meandering creek found
Twisting and turning through the hills
Harmonious it looks serene it feels

Enchanted I’m quite relaxed my feet up
Caressing the warmth of my coffee cup
Watching the horizontal shadow
Of vertical trees move slowly across the snow

February calling me to go out and play
On this lovely warm winter day

And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
