Treasure Island

It needn't be exalting praise,
It can even be a critique attack,
Reveling in our talent's lack.
Just don't say anything about my mother;
They're very sensitive, my mobbed-up brothers.

The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
