Treasure Island

John McKay Withey

(Ayrshire, Scotland)


Over the twins, rules Mercury sublime,
Messenger of the Gods, hastens through time.
Symbol of communication with a restless fate,
Eloquence and silver tongue is his trait.

Inquisitive, intelligent, with a roving eye,
Many flirtations, this sign will try.
With lack of stability, no permanent state,
Friends they can hurt, a difficult mate.

Verbal dexterity they have in excess,
Translators or linguists, using words to express.
Adaptable, versatile and very unreliable,
Their light hearted wit, readily undeniable.

Aquarius should bring a reasoning to bear,
Of light hearted liaisons be very aware.
Whilst mediator Libra brings balance so fair,
Their diplomacy shows a viewpoint to share.

Duality of nature as day and night,
Like Castor and Pollux, they have a plight.
With Mercury ruling their guiding light,
Their quickness of wit turns wrong into right.

Poem of the Day

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,
