Treasure Island

Alison Smith

(22nd February 1957 / Orange, New South Wales, Australia)

Through This One Union


She stood before him defiant
He came to her his body aflame
His desire evident in his pose
Their union would ignite a world.

Her body showed nothing of her battle
She wanted no more than to soar
Along this road of discovery
She would glisten in the afterglow.

As the powers collided
A spiral of disturbance was felt
Within this eddy of emotion
Two bodies where united as one.

Their epic battle would last an eternity
As their minds tested the theories
New stars would appear
The discoveries where immense

Can you feel the change around you
The new time of evolution is here
Through this one union
Has the glory of change occurred.

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
