Treasure Island

Inside Dracula's Castle


Inside Dracula's Castle
I'm ready to explore the corridors
and halls

Inside Dracula's Castle
Floating giant skulls keep watch over
everything
Including me

Walking past them
I can tell they're ready to give chase
Turning around, they freeze
Attacking and destroying them, they're
no more

Continuing on
Through the library
I didn't know Dracula loved to read so much
The books, which are many, are all shelved

Inside Dracula's Castle
I can tell there are many windows
Looking out of a few of them
I can tell things are going bump in the night
Outside
In the graveyard

Passing through the dining room
In Dracula's Castle
I can tell a meal was prepared for the master
vampire not that long ago
As the remains of a meal are still here
He's in the castle somewhere

Inside Dracula's Castle
I've seen it all
Well the heart of it, anyway
I must continue on
Into the night
While I'm inside
Inside Dracula's Castle

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;
