Treasure Island

What I Wouldn't Give


What I wouldn't give
To dance by the light of the moon
To revel in the soft glow of dawn
And to watch sunset with you

What I wouldn't give
To watch your pupils dilate with longing
Your eyes narrow with love
Your smile full of laughter

What I wouldn't give
For just one day with you
Without another's judgement
With nobody else watching

What I wouldn't give
For a night alone with you
To please you, and hold you
With love in my heart

What I wouldn't give
To kindle your desire
To be needed as desperately as
I need for you

What I wouldn't give
To be held in your arms
To feel your soft lips on mine
To feel your caress on my cheek

What I wouldn't give
For your need to be mirrored by my own
For your love to shine through your eyes
And for you to be mine unconditionally

What I wouldn't give…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
