Treasure Island

Lloyd Savage


May the wind be at your back,
The fresh sun on thy face,
And all your life so filled
With God's most gentle grace.
May every step you take
Lead you to better things,
And may your visions of the future
Be what tomorrow brings.
May everything you think
Be free from hurt and pain,
And everything you see
Set free to love again.
And may everything you do
Be the thing that should be done,
And may all your love return to you
From where it first begun.

But of all these Mays,
May I simply ask-
That all your prayers do come true
And so answered in a special way
They're especially for you! !

also retitled it before for St. Patricks day calling it an Irish Prayer.

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
