Treasure Island

Charlotte Ballard


Spring


When Dandelions spout golden hats
Savory and thyme first peek out,
And bull-frogs croak a lover's song
To delight and entertain
A swollen belly lady eager to spawn.
The blue jays, then, on every tree
Muddies the air with a ratchet song.
And then dive-bombs a silky hair menace
Never retreat-the babes are safe once more.

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
