Treasure Island

How Swiftly....

I find how swiftly Time has flown!
Seems like the years that I have known
Were with me here just yesterday
But now my hair has turned to gray!

How fast indeed, I've now grown old
Though sands of time I try to hold
My finish line's almost in view
Remaining days spent in review.

Reflecting on what I shouldn't have done
The many chances that were all gone
Still in my heart, I am quite content
That God had moved me to repent.

So these my last days will be my best
For in His care I have put my rest,
My hope is sure, to this I rejoice-
For soon I will hear my Savior's voice!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
