Treasure Island

Peter S. Quinn


Moonlight and Love Songs


Night of sky and moon
Going on and on
Dawn will come in soon
And my dreams are gone

Flowing tides of dark
Dreams of wings free
Fantasies in their spark
All what must be

What lies in distance?
Glowing fire wide
Moods of pining trance
Where dark shadows hide

So much in the far
Love songs of the night
Like a wishing star
Flying on – blue bright

Dreams that can’t be told
In secret’s many ways
Beats of echoes old
Still in thoughts for days

What the future brings
Shall be a different story
In to a rising day sings
With all its sunshine glory

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;
