Treasure Island

Like Family


Awoken by their light
These people are for life
Enriched is this sight
These people are for life

Around love they come
They honour the sun
Make merry in testimony
With them, never lonely

As constant as night
These people are for life
When feeling down they hold on tight
These people are for life

Feeling better for knowing them
Building this form up again and again
Open to dance and breathe
Lending courage to believe

Whether it be wrong or right
These people are for life
Awoken by their light
These people are for life

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
