Treasure Island

Carolyn Sears

(March 30-1950 / Magnolia, Arkansas)

The River Bend


I dreamed of thee in the
Time of “ole”

You called out from

Beneath the river bend

As I closed my eyes in

The eve of the noon

Evening coming,

The river screamed out

In all his intention for

My ears to hear his pain

Moaning, moaning the

River screeched around

The bend..

Rapidly it ran and held

My lover soul in bondage

As I dreamed of thee in the

Time of “ole”

My lover called out beneath

The river bend..

And sadly haunted me in this

Time of “ole”
