Treasure Island

Summer Song

(July 13,1991 / Indiana)

Stained Glass


This isn't where I belong
I'm lost in translation
I'm a multifaceted
Stained glass
Childhood Imagination
I'll dream at any cost
I was purchased for free
I ran from Apollo
and now I'm a Laurel tree
I'm a forgotten rhyme
I'm a bleeding Syllable
and I still can't fly
it's unbelievable
I was just born
two days after my death
I died when you first cried
and I took my last breath
This isn't where I belong
I'm lost in translation
I'm a multifaceted
Stained glass
Childhood Imagination

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 »
