Treasure Island

Bill Cantrell

The Treasure of a Letter

Words carefully written,
Will they stand the test of time?
The secret is emotion,
Not in the way words rhyme.
Treasures found,
Lessons learned,
Put them in a chest.
No better words than I love you,
Could ever serve you best.

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
