Treasure Island

Jeff Kurfess


The sleeping of the queen


A grievous plan unraveled
On the eve two hearts entwined
She was lost among the leeches
As I stumbled with the blind

Her love forsaken spirit
Left us hanging out to dry
Beneath the raging thunder
From an endless aching sky

I led her through the meadow
Laid her down along the crest
Her hair was black as reason
As it spread across my chest

She woke up crying softly
I stroked her hair until she dreamed
Then stared in silent wonder at
The sleeping of the queen

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
