Treasure Island

DEEP DARK SOUL POET

(09/1965 / Australia)

Life's stories unfold and untold..


Life's stories unfold and untold
Reflections on peices of broken glass
Patterns of a distorted past
Covered by a gleam of coloured dust
Vanishing with the light dying fast

Forgotten, the pieces stayed there
Until a hand reached out to care
Uncovered the roots of despair
Seeing a vision that was very rare

Discovering its real presence
The pieces showed it's true essence
Unmasked, beauty came to make sense
The hands uncovered greatness, hence

Enlightened, the innocent hands became
That once were existing with no gain
Strongly blind to its new formed frame
Encased in a gnarled and aged grain proscenium
The the wood, the glass and hands became the same

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
