Treasure Island

Brian Kilpatrick


Off Chasing Rainbows


Off you went chasing rainbows
To the far corners of the earth
Not looking for the gold
But just satisfied with search

Off you went searching for rainbows
And all the time your pockets were filled with gold
If you had only known
What you had found such a long time ago

If you had only known
What you had found such a long time ago
You may have stayed at home
And polished one of those old pots of gold

Poem of the Day

But if it had to perish twice,
