Treasure Island

Anne jojo

(august 1985)


The scent of you
Is all i'm left with
Still reminds me of you
If i could write an ode to you
It would not mean a thing

The essence of you
Is all my mind's with
Still crazy about you
If i could write a song for you
It would not mean a thing

The dream of you
Is all i sleep with
Still holds me to you
If i could knit a scarf for you
It would not bind a thing

The shadow of you
Is all i walk with
Still binds me with you
If i could build a boat for you
It would not sail a thing.

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;
