Treasure Island

Sugarcane Princes

Hibiscus flower horns alert sugarlands forest
Fairies tribal melody is announcing in chorus
Crickets rub their wings sending plea of help
As cries of a child whose screams are felt.

Cora crow takes flight following the sound
Hidden at sugarlands edge a child is found
Thicket hides a princess in linen and gold
Toddy troll carries her to fairies abode.

Sugarlands domain awaits child's arrival
Blanket of flower petals promise survival
Sugarcanes under siege to the south
Fairies pour coconut milk into her mouth.

A princess and heir to sugarcane forest
Queen announces her safety is before us
Taking her deep into a giant redwood tree
Years pass now a grown Queen we see

Beautifully strong heading for her land
Dressed in wild flowers a fabric grand
Raven black hair and cheeks of cherry
Deed to her land in her hand she carries.

Sugarcane air is sweet once more
Wild flowered Ivy covers hillside floor
Hearts joyous as peace fills the air
A princess whose beauty none other compare.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
