Treasure Island

Cicely Fox Smith

(1882-1954 / England)


Rosemary for remembrance, -
O gentle memories
Of hours whose fragrance is like flowers
In olden pleasaunces!
When all the birds go South again
And all the laughter's o'er,
Rosemary for remembrance
Of days that are no more!

Rosemary for remembrance
Of summer posies done, -
And scarlet for midsummer joy
And gold for noonday sun.
God grant us in autumnal days,
When brighter flowers have died,
Rosemary for remembrance
And dreams for eventide!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
