Treasure Island

Gengis Capote

(October,27,1968 / Havana, Cuba)

Solitary be Refrain


Cloaked by Moon light,
Another solitary midnight arrives.
Stars gather all around,
Forming constellations-
Little dippers stretch among the sky,
Perfect setting to find life.

Lens after lens reveals the same,
Alone in a round watery grave,
I ponder in dismay, screaming-
'Solitary be refrain'

It's this not the same night we all see?
Same stars cloaked in Moon light,
Feeling lonely seems a haste to waste.

Where so many eyes have seen,
The twinkle of the heavens, and the sun,
Only a few have touched the sky.

Solitary be refrain!

All around lies life,
In the cracks beneath our feet,
In the air that we breath,
In our food we love to eat.

Solitary be refrain!
Never alone when cloaked by light of Moon.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
