Treasure Island

Deborah Lynn Janik


Shut Up in the Dark


All my life, I never knew
The world was to be savored,
So older and taller I grew,
And this world was never favored.

All my life, I never found
The world as oh-so-great;
Never listened to the sound
And let fate just be fate.

All my life, I never heard
The calling of the lark.
Of course my ears heard not a word.
I was shut up in the dark.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
