Treasure Island

Kevin East

(22 April 1954 / Amersham bucks)

Love's Sunset.


I saw a sunset face
Above a lonely beach.
And her eyeliner
Was the sky.
And her hair glowed
Soft in peach,
As her rouge
Bled into the night
To fly.
I have to smile
At love's sunset
She always winks
When with style
She sinks
Flaunting no regret.
Like a haunting minuet.
Love's sunset,
Just before her arms
Embrace the moon,
Who will swoon
In blue magic beam.
As brightest lemon
And cream
Are erased from the sky.
In the twinkle
Of an eye,
A star
Like orange memories
Waving from afar.
The day surrenders
To the night.
As the galaxy
Catches alight,
Trapping beauty
In its net.
Blowing kisses of fire
To dark maidens it met.
Pining fading colours
Of love's sunset.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
