Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

The Rolling Blues


The blues are rolling
like a train down the tracks
singing about the bad times
but hoping for a break

The harp player is blowing
like a train whistle before a stop
the rhythm player is playing
to the sound of the wheels on a track

The singer is singing
to the pain and the struggle
while we all sit and listen
to what comes from the heart

    Dave Allan Walker, I found this jewel trapping light in its full essence. The jaguar leaped out from the poem and got me. Thanks for the maul, it was terrific.

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
