Treasure Island

Liilia Talts Morrison

(August 20,1937 / Estonia)


Tectonic plates beneath the seas
volcanoes feared by Javanese
faults tearing rocks and earth apart
who can foretell when they will start

Bold waves that nothing can withstand
great winds roar whipping coastal lands
and from above an asteroid
can hit the earth and much destroy

There is no place that is secure
no policy that can insure
against the mighty hand of fate
for those who wonder and who wait

Yet there's an island not on maps
that no disaster can collapse
The few who live there can't be harmed
for they are with a strong shield armed

Adventurers exploring lands
or oceans deep or mountains grand
have never found this place apart
because it dwells within the heart

Within the soul for those who trust
with childlike faith to readjust
their hopes and dreams for a safe home
find shelter under God's strong dome.

Poem of the Day

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 »
