Treasure Island

Anthony Burge

(16/06/1962 / Australia)

Sea Siren

Revolving light

Burning bright

Stands tall on ink black sea

Raised blinking eye

Flirting allure

Beckons summoned me

Come closer, nearer

Lull by my side

Join me on rising tide

Change your true course

tack to my mark

With eyes shut wide

I’ll lead you through the darkened sea

Through winds of time and tides

Have faith in me

Your guiding light

I’ll guide you through the night

Disregard the shattered shards

Of those who came before

For they ran foul of jagged reefs

Upon my hidden shore

I sing a song of sirens

A lullaby to sleep

Come lie neath satin ocean

Held in my arms for keeps

Poet's Notes about The Poem

O200hrs on watch in the wheelhouse of the 'Bathurst' mesmerised by the pulsing beacon in the distance, my eye drawn like a moth to the flame.

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
