Treasure Island

Leland D'Elormie


Ladies, Ladies


Ladies, Ladies,
Please...
For Our Lady's virtue,
Be as she: incomparable,
Bold and Free,
None Fairer, Be as she,
The one whose boy,
Is like unto the son.

Darling Beauty,
Please...
Brighten for the future,
Hope in me; Uncontainable,
As the sea,
Wild woman, Hope in me,
The one to whom,
All this great wrong you've done.

Mothers, Mothers,
Please...
Be more than the chamber,
In which we, in our ignorance,
Cannot see,
None weaker; Blind and Free,
We are, whose blood,
Is yours, whose sins you share.

Ladies, Ladies,
Please...
In our bleak years be gentle,
Bend your knees; All-formidable,
Mercy on me!
None weaker; Always be,
The one, whose strength,
And warmth are like the sun.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
