Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

When The Stormy Wind Jerked On The Windows


while the rain fell as if endless,
you pulled me nearer in moment upon moment
and I was caught in the heat of your arms,

could feel your breath against my cheek
while in madness the storm whipped up gigantic waves
as if these cloudy days would last forever
but to me you were a source of light

and nothing could conquer our joy
even when at times
somewhat shy we did look blushing at each other
and eternally your smile will stay with me.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
