Treasure Island

Ibrahim Ibn Salma


Mont Taba


A time we spent
Near your lower hills,

Your stones greeted us
And spoke to us of love,

Out of your rocks
We built a temple
To guard our union -
A child-like encounter
We never outgrew,

We played the game of innocence
On your chilled top,
Our embraced souls
Shrouded by your snowflakes,
Never shivered, never quivered,
Never wanted to part,

A game we thought we would
Never stop playing.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
