Treasure Island

Lauren Meredith Gould

(May 12,1991, / Aurora)


Floating in the air,
A million little secrets,
A million little hearts,
And a million little tests.

Why are they here?
Where are they floating to?
How did they get there?
And what are they going to do?

A million little secrets,
Being whispered in 2 million ears,
No one will ever know them,
They'll be kept for years.

A million little hearts,
Trying to find their way,
Being careful not to break,
Trying not to sway.

A million little tests,
Formed up to be one big task,
This task is called life,
Do you think you will pass?

There are these secrets,
There are these hearts,
There are these tests,
They all play their part.

Floating in the air,
A million little secrets,
A million little hearts,
And a million little tests.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
