Treasure Island

David Whalen

Sweet Temptation



Curly fringes
of yellow Roses
Nestled deep in Garden’s clutch
Tug insistent upon bumblebee noses
Teasing them in with temptress touch

Covert trade…
Golden pollen for golden nectar
In transaction to them known not as such
With siren song and no hint of hector
A touch of sweetness…but not too much

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
