Treasure Island

Tatiana Perez

(December 1,1995)

In the moonlit night


in the moonlit night
stood a tree out of sight
as the wind started to blow it shook with all its might

trees swaying to and fro
ready to bend ready to break
always whispering amongst themselves

in the moonlit night ran a stream out of sight
as a storm rolled in it started to spin
in the ultraviolet light

trees swaying to and fro
ready to bend ready to break
always whispering amongst themselves

in the moonlit night
flew a bird with its wings spread wide.
As the rain came down
and it started to drown
it suddenly had to hide,
over the tree, passed the brook
through the storm the trees shook
finally finding safety within a tree.

trees swaying to and fro
ready to bend ready to break
always whispering amongst themselves

    I like the rhyming scheme you got, but I feel you need to write a stanza that tells how it all ended for the trees. (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
