Treasure Island

Roots


I've walked this valley many times,
Though never failed to see,
The reason why I love it so,
The joy it's placed in me.

It holds so many memories,
I keep so close to heart,
You are my lovely valley,
I know we'll never part.

You are my roots, my love, my life,
You're deep within my soul,
For leaving you and moving on,
Would place a big black hole.

For I'll remain your loving friend,
Forever till I die,
Enjoy your splendour to the end,
The apple of my eye.

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
