Treasure Island

The Dorset Viking

My Magic Box

I will put in the box

a rugby ball made of pure gold
the sound of a well connected kick
and the cheer of the crowd as it goes through the posts.

I will put in the box

a grouse bone whistle which calls souls back to this world
a charred, hollow tree with jewels in the middle
the flame of a candle bringing hope to the earth.

I will put in the box

a single silver star
a golden eagle feather's eagle
and an encyclopedia of sport.

I will put in the box

a mirror that shows the truth
a hammer that can break anything
and the horn of a unicorn.

My box is fashioned from Diamond, Emerald and
and snow, with stalactites hanging from the ceiling
and a some rugby posts in the middle.

I will play Rugby in my box,
all day long and at night I will stare at the beauty
of the single silver star and dream of the next day.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
