Treasure Island

John Bliven Morin

(September 16th,1936 / New London, CT)

Night in the Everglades (part 2 of 2)


At last a faint glimmer of light
begins to outline the live oaks
with their long gray beards,
the cypress knees and

the palmettos and sabals;
the egrets take to flight,
cranes wade through the swamp
seeking fish hidden below.

The nocturnals retire,
it is dawn; the rising sun
bakes away the mists of night
Across the vast 'glades.
