Treasure Island

ian westwood

(31.7.1948 / Sheppey, Kent, England)


If love is not what it seems
If love is not what it seems,
And days grow dark on awakening,
It is time for me to depart,
And seek a new path forsaking.

If the day dims when I gaze at the sun,
Then there is an inequality in my soul.
If I can no longer rejoice at all I’ve ever won,
Then all my dreams are lost,
And I wander lonely onwards
With no sense or goal.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
