Treasure Island

Moated Waters of the River Rhine


Turrets assemble saluting the nomadic Rhine,
castles deeply footed in Goethe’s romanticized age
honor the passing river as the dandelions sway

    Man's curiosity is a curse and a blessing I guess. Nice philosophical twist here.
    Why are the archers firing at your ship? I hope this intriguing adventure continues, so we find out. (Report) Reply
