Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

The Wonder Of You (REVISED)

I love what you are and represent, your ideas,
assurance, principles, discipline and talent,
I love the essence of your being

I will go on holistically loving this whatever
you do, wherever you may be, I shall cherish
the treasured memory of what you taught me

How you were kind when I felt swept away
by feelings - yielding to despair, you never
gave up on me as if the tie binding was a

special understanding - a gift you never
suspended, sharing your strength that way
kept me safe; when boredom paralysed and

life seemed meaningless I gave up but you
anchored me. Thanks for the wonder of you in
a well-meaning world full of insight-less

strangers lacking your gift and affability

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
