Treasure Island

Walter C. Edwards


From Once We Came


When I be came a nothing,
did that mean,
that I no longer exists,
no point to reference,
not a guiding light,
to show you,
from once you came,
shell game at the waters edge,
crawling forth from the mud and muck.
only to peck me from below,
pull me not into the sallow water so.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
