Treasure Island


I saw only her

‘Though the room was full, I saw only her
all the others gathered were just a blur.
My Muse of love poetry was standing there
looking so beautiful and so fair.

She was making the coffee and the tea
and poured out a 'pint of Guinness' for me.
Then as I supped it, I drank in the sight
of my lovely Muse upon that Guild night.

Like Mona Lisa stood my Muse so fair
silhouetted within the doorway there,
Mesmerised, I began to appreciate
her loveliness for she was looking great.

Beauty of character enshrined in grace.
Her sparkling eyes set in a lovely face.
Enthralled by the beauty of what I saw.
The contours of her shape filled me with awe.

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
