Treasure Island

Alison Cassidy

(6th August,1945 / Melbourne, Australia)

Let there be Light

Harsh light
Summer sun
Baking the earth

Soft light
Long shadows

Winter light
Cool blue

New light
Bright jonquils

The light
Of understanding
In your eyes

    I think this is a wonderful piece that has a gracefulness in its flow. I like the manner in which you present each stanza, : the way that the narrative seems broken but then complete once the final stanza is reached. (Report) Reply

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
