Treasure Island

Theodora (Theo) Onken

(Washington State)

Upon Wings I Soar~

The day was young
And it was all tambourines
Gypsy winds & raindrop chimes
I stenciled in some wings;
In hopes to take flight
To be carried across & through
The morning canyons
And honeysuckle vines-new;
To float high above
The majestic peaks-sublime
In flight with the sparrow
Within the breeze of a rhyme;
With spectators below
A congregation of butterflies
There was enchantment everywhere
Soaring Heavens most Divine skies;

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
