Treasure Island

Peter S. Quinn


Oh flower why are you so small?


Oh flower
Why are you so small?
With many blooms
Of white and blue

I’ve found you
Again - this summer
So faraway
From my town of town

In sweetly scent
You embraced me
So tenderly now
You make me safe
And worthy too

Sweet flower
I kiss your buds
Don’t be afraid
I won't snap your stem

Because of you I came
To this green forest
To have you here
And blossom

I've found you
In a silent garden
Of wilderness shrine
And beauty

Your little green leaves
Welcomed me
With so much
For me to see

Now I can stare
And be proud
That you stand
In your freedom

With many wonderful blooms
That freedom gave
To life

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
