Treasure Island

Trust the Spirits


Bright spirits
Twilight sight getting easier
Through the night
Quiet spirit
At this height
Shine so spritely
With tranquil delight
Solemn spirit
In slow flight
Looks so still
In the dark of night
Hello kind spirit
Floating like a kite
Light our way
Through troubled plight
Trust the spirit
And all its might
To be a beacon
For what's right
Here's to the spirit
Shone high tonight
Shed forth wisdom
To spark our light

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
