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 Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
