Treasure Island

Piet Groot


The sonnet


It may discuss the fate of man,
the meaning of the thing called ‘life’,
or how it all began, and when;
the topics can be very diverse.

With phrases sometimes complicated,
at other times not hard at all,
its importance can’t be overrated,
when read, great knowledge may befall

whoever reads that mighty essence,
with lines of four and four and two of three,
its meaning great, a convalescence,

Oh God, I beg You, let it be
that this art form never goneth,
this all-important work called Sonnet.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
