Treasure Island

Turn Around dnuorA nruT


.
I ran backwards for three weeks
just to see the way you smiled
'climbed the Seven Hills of Rome
to catch the echo of your voice

I passed you by on a cloud so high
and I caught the scent of your hair
'from my aerial view saw a thing
or two, but that’s not here nor there

I swam around the world today
and I watched as you waded in
but the ruthless view did not
show you so I swam away again

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
