Treasure Island

Joe Howell

(05-30-1950 / Tennessee)

leaving


don't take my picture today
leave with out it, dont stop
at the city limits and have a smoke
put the car in drive and get on with it

the flowers didn't bloom this may
water wasn't fresh or fall was to late
I will be leaving soon taking the bus
Dallas looks good, know someone there

I had soup for supper, with some bread
David said that he could work on the car
the insurance check will be here soon
and i want to just move on

don't take my picture to day
it's too late for me to stay

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
