Treasure Island

Julie Dant

(August 7,1951 / Illinois)

Was it You?

I thought I sensed your presence
In the sultry southern night
Was it you? Were you there?

Was the breeze I felt upon my cheek
Your breath as you breathed a sigh?
Was it you?

I thought I heard you murmer
Among the moss draped oaks
Were you there?

Were you walking right beside me
Along that dusty moonlit road?
Were you?

I thought you made me shiver
One more time with just your touch.
Did you?

I thought I felt the pressure
Of your fingers upon my lips.
Was that you?

I f I had reached out quick enough
Would you have had to stay?
Would you?

High above these old live oaks
Are you watching over me?
Is it you? Are you there?

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
