Treasure Island

Robert Leary

(New London, Connecticut)

QUESTION


I sit alone upon this beach
Two divers one close one far
Patrol the waters to the East
I ponder which one am I
Do I lurk with shells and pebbles
Or do I look beyond my reach
To uncertainties at other levels
Do I comfort in the known
Or choose the fathoms of unknown
Do I travel far and wide
Or seek the comfort by my side
Is it fair to ask her…
For my future’s so unclear?

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
