Treasure Island

Mark Heathcote

(22/03/66 / Manchester)

I'm sure it's not such a lonely road


Although my soul isn't a guessed
I'd like to leave it abandoned
To walk the forest fluoresced
Touched by moonlights, garland.

I'd like to hoot with tawny owls
And watch the fungi's outstretch
I'd like to see the stoats open jowls
As they a pheasant fowl do catch.

I'd like to hear forests creaking
Like a bat biting on a beetle
I'd like to go quietly, bounding
With a stag; hoofs in dark treacle.

I'd like to pace besides a vixen
Watch how she rolls in the snow
See bloodied farmhouse chicken
Slayed by its jaw necks heave-ho.

Although my soul isn't a guessed
I'd like to leave it abandoned
To walk the forest fluoresced
Touched by moonlights, garland.
I'd like to leapfrog with the toad
I'm sure it's not such a lonely road.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
