Treasure Island

Piyush Dey


What It Was That I Was Looking For?

There had been a delay, a great delay,
Everything skipped me everyday, everyday,
I wouldn't mind any pain,
I wouldn't mind slipping any gain,
For something that i was looking for,
In the gallant deserts of the sand,
In the scorching fire of the summer suns,
And then finally staying up all night,
I realized what it was that I was looking for,
There it was in the clear sky.
laughing, laughing at the same jokes over and over,
as if each time it heard it for the very first time-
I wish i had kept on looking up then.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
