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 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
