Treasure Island

Guillermo Veloso

(September 25 1962 / New York City)

Somewhere Far Away

Somewhere an ocean spreads on a sleeping beach
Somewhere a wave falls red with krill
Somewhere a blue whale leaps in scaffold breach
Somewhere a tern paints an arctic sky
Somewhere the day is quiet, golden and still
Somewhere a man faces his death and asks why
Somewhere a pie cools just baked on a wooden sill

    Somewhere a man faces his death
    And somewhere a pie cools on a wooden sill

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
