Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

The Fifth Star

When shadows lengthen in the west,
I'll attempt to align five stars,
Errant messengers of the night,
Casting a spell we'll claim as ours

The first star represents your dreams,
All the dreams you hope will come true,
Everything your heart desires....
Expect a breathtaking view!

The second star will give you wings,
Leave the dust of this earth behind,
Soar through clouds to faraway spheres,
See what shining worlds you'll find

The third star is a poem for you,
Designed for the joy it will bring,
Verses of love that sing to your heart,
Composed by a queen for her king

The fourth star is my love for you,
In my heart, you're the beloved guest,
When weariness overtakes your soul,
Fly to me... and be at rest

The fifth star is to wish upon
If I've failed to satisfy
Every need and wish you have.....
Oh, my darling, I did try!

Remember what you see tonight,
The display will be divine,
But not an easy feat, my love,
For mortal hands like mine!

    Your poems never fail the needs of others
    But if I was your King I know what I'd try,
    That fifth wish, that so stands out from it's brothers,
    'Let Lora's heart and soul find their rest
    And in God's arms build a nest, '
    That alone would be my only cry! (Report) Reply

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;
